Mission Statement

Grey Bears improves the health and well being of seniors through volunteerism and community participation.

Description

From a simple act of sharing garden produce with senior neighbors in 1973, Grey Bears has grown into one of the most resourceful food distribution and recycling nonprofits in the country. Local, vital and multifaceted, their mission is to improve the health and well being of seniors through food distribution and volunteerism. The brown bag program, recycling centers, thrift store, classes and events are supported by more than 500 amazing volunteers who donate 80,000 hours of service each year, helping connect and sustain seniors, our community and our environment.

"I am so grateful for the food in my weekly brown bag and my delivery driver, Paula, who I adore. I am disabled and my husband passed away four years ago. Grey Bears is a lifesaver."

- Victoria, age 92 of Santa Cruz
