Breakfast Bags

Feeding Both Body and Soul

A Second Meal for Our Most Food-Insecure Seniors, Delivered with a Smile

Even with the lunch we provide 5 days/week, many seniors are still faced with choosing between food and medicine at the end of the month. The Breakfast Bags program, introduced in 2016, provides a second meal to our most food-insecure seniors in Montgomery County who are unable to leave their homes.

These visits also provide an additional social visit and safety check – letting them know the community has not forgotten them.

Donate breakfast bags

Last year, volunteers delivered 10,000 Breakfast Bags to homebound seniors in our area. Due to a strong need, our goal this year is to deliver 20,000 bags – and we need your help! Explore the many ways you can get involved with this program below.

GATHER A GROUP
