Adopt, help feed a senior

Adopting a senior for home-delivered meals is a good way to give the gift of hot, nutritious meals to a homebound elderly person while also making a meaningful tax-deductible contribution.

The High Noon Senior Nutrition Program delivers over 190 meals each day. Approximately 65 recipients are unable to contribute a share of cost for their meal.

By adopting a senior, you have the assurance that your contribution goes directly to provide meals for a specific person. Typically, this person is a longtime resident of Nevada County who grew up here, worked in our community in the trades or service industry, has aged here, and is now faced with more expense decisions than a fixed income can cover. Knowing that they will have a hot nutritious meal five days a week eases a burden.

Since our overhead is already in place, we are seeking to cover the cost of additional raw food and packaging for their meals, approximately $45 per month.

You may chose to adopt a senior in part or in full with a one-time contribution, or by sending a small amount on a regular basis. Smaller contributions are combined and assigned to cover meals for a particular recipient.

All of us working together can make a difference. For more information, please call 273-4961.
