Our Featured Go Green for Seniors Story
Glenora has been a faithful participant to the ‘Go Green for Seniors’ Green Bag Program. She receives less than $20 a month from food stamps and found it difficult to purchase fruits and vegetables with the little money she has left after paying her bills. Receiving a 10 pound bag of fruits and vegetables every month from Green Bag has helped her tremendously.
Louis, an 81-year old, retired from his job and felt he was not getting enough fruits and vegetables in his diet. With the fixed income he lived on he felt there were few options to get more nutritious food until he found the 'Go Green for Seniors' Green Bag Program. Now he is a dedicated participant to the 'Go Green for Seniors' Green Bag Program and he looks forward to the information he receives each month about eating healthier and exercising.
