Last year, in partnership with our friends at North Newstead Association we delivered delicious, nutritious food to 180 seniors in need form the Penrose, O’Fallon, Fairground, Carr Square, JeffVanderLou, St. Louis Place, Old North, Columbus Square, and Gate District neighborhoods. Our goal was simple: increase healthy food resources to at risk seniors.
Based on the success of this pilot program, the Link Market is expanding our work to offer free, weekly grocery delivery services to seniors living in income-based living communities. The communities we serve currently include:
- Hylton Point I Apartments
- Hylton Point II Apartments
- Ollie Langhorst Senior Apartments
- Alpha Terrace Apartments
We have more capacity to help more seniors so, if you know of a deserving senior center that could benefit from this free resource, contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
