Senior Moments began in March 2007 with the vision of giving senior citizens the opportunity to receive additional food in a casual environment, where they could also enjoy themselves over a game of bingo with new friends and a healthy meal. The program addresses the nutritional needs of seniors 55 and older, but also serves as a wellness check and an opportunity to socialize. Senior Moments slowly grew from a program with only five participants to a now a very popular bi-monthly program with around one hundred participants attending each event.
Last year, 384 at-risk seniors received additional food through our Senior Moments program, which averages 120 seniors at each event.* The program provides seniors with groceries, a healthy lunch, time to socialize, blood pressure screenings and, most importantly, a sense of community. Staff and volunteers carefully coordinate themed decorations, food and entertainment. Additional program events include educational speakers and bilingual Bingo!
