“The food is great and the people who deliver the food are friendly.” – Thelma Williams, Target Hunger senior client
Target Hunger delivers nutritious food to approximately 700 seniors aged 60 and over each month. Target Hunger also offers Navigation Services to its seniors and pantry clients to help them gain access to needed services for healthcare, social services, and other vital community resources.
Senior Home Delivery Program
This program assists seniors who are unable to visit a food pantry due to health issues or lack of mobility. The Adopt-A-Route Program engages corporate and community partners in delivering groceries to homebound clients. These delivery programs, which cover 20 routes in northeast Houston, enable seniors to remain living independently and allows them to “age in place.” In addition to delivering nutritious food to our seniors, the Target Hunger drivers also check on the clients, providing a ‘touch point’ and may contact other agencies as needed to provide additional resources.
Senior Day Site Program
Target Hunger provides groceries to clients through distribution to 10 local senior activity centers and apartment complexes.
Thelma says, “it’s important to support Target Hunger, because of the great job the organization does feeding seniors and the community.”
