Our Senior Food Program: Elder Share
Seniors’ health depends heavily on nutrition. However, getting healthy food can be difficult for older adults who not only depend on a fixed income, but who also have limited transportation options — or may even be homebound.
Our Elder Share program provides free groceries, twice per month, to seniors with low incomes in neighborhoods throughout Boulder and Broomfield Counties. For homebound individuals, one of our volunteers can drop grocery items off directly at their residence. Food choices include fresh produce, milk, meat and frozen items, deli products, eggs, bread, shelf-stable pantry items, and other nutritious options and if you meet the income guidelines, additional commodity foods from the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP).
