Nourishing Seniors

Senior Boxes

Our senior members can receive assistance through Senior Boxes, a program that provides nourishing food to food insecure seniors. A Senior Box includes 35 pounds of healthy foods, including canned protein, juice, vegetables, fruit and cereal. Across Northwest Missouri, 998 boxes are provided to seniors through the USDA Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP). Get involved with Senior Boxes today. Sign up to volunteer, or contact Second Harvest calling 816-364-3663, ext.216 or emailing our Volunteer Coordinator, Andrew Foster, at afoster@shcfb.org. Second Harvest requires volunteers every month to pack boxes and distribute these important resources to our seniors.
