Fundraising Campaign

Close to 170,000 older Missourians - or 1 in 8 of Missouri's seniors - suffer from food insecurity. This includes incidences where seniors can't safely access healthy food due to cost, lack of transportation, or other factors. With many seniors in already vulnerable health, a lack of healthy food can cause new health conditions and make existing ones such as high blood pressure or diabetes more serious. Others must choose between taking medications as prescribed and eating one month, or staying warm/cool the next month. We want to help. SeniorAge offers nutritious meals served each weekday in our dining rooms among friends or provides home-delivered meals to individuals who must dine at home. Our meals are offered on a contribution basis which means additional funding for our program is essential to ensure meals are available for those who are most vulnerable. Meals are oftentimes the one obstacle that prevents seniors from living independently and at home. We want to help those individuals fulfill their hope of staying at home for as long as they can safely do so. In turn, we help seniors save money and save taxpayers dollars by keeping them in their own home versus institutional care.
