About

Shopping For Seniors/food shop for frail elders.

The Shopping For Seniors Program matches volunteers with frail, elderly persons who are unable to shop for themselves. Clients call in their shopping order weekly to the Department on Aging, the shopper then picks up the grocery order, goes shopping, and delivers food. This is a program that allows frail, elderly persons to have fresh food of their choice, and to have contact with a persons outside of their home. The client's nutrition and well being are enhanced.

Volunteers will pick up shopping lists and needed items for the clients at the assigned location nearest them. Shopping and delivery are completed. Some uncomplicated paperwork is required.
