According to a study released by the National Foundation to End Senior Hunger, when compared to food secure seniors, food insecure seniors are:
You need food to survive. But research shows you need more than a meal to thrive. We can all look back in our own lives to see how our spirits have been enriched by coming together around a meal with cherished friends and family.
Perhaps the first dinner date with your future spouse.
Maybe your wedding cake or your baby's first "real" food.
Family conversations over dinner.
Grandma's legendary apple pie, made with love.
Most of us never doubt that a meal or a hug and an encouraging word will be there when we need it. But for 1 in 6 Greater Tampa elderly and homebound neighbors like Delia, a warm, nutritious meal, a hug, or simply speaking to another person on a daily basis is not guaranteed. Together we can solve this problem. Will you please help?
Because of compassionate and caring people like you, 850 homebound neighbors receive a hot meal and warm smile each weekday. But there is much more to do to keep seniors and the homebound in their homes where they want to be.
To end hunger and isolation in Greater Tampa, we have launched a $5 million MORE-THAN-A-MEAL Campaign to build a new facility. The facility will nearly double our space to about 9,600 square feet, providing the capacity to serve 3,000 meals each weekday to our homebound neighbors.
Your kind and generous support will not only increase the number of meals delivered each weekday, you will make special meals possible - such as meals for diabetics and heart patients. You will change the lives of elderly and homebound neighbors just like Delia for generations to come.
