The PA Senior Food Box Program is a federally-funded program that is designed to improve the health of low-income seniors by supplementing their diets with nutritious food. Among the types of foods included in the food boxes are: non-fat dry and shelf-stable fluid milk, juice, oats, ready-to-eat cereal, rice, pasta, dry beans, peanut butter, canned meat, poultry, or fish, and canned fruits and vegetables.
Currently, Second Harvest serves 2,475 individuals each month. We rely on a dedicated group of volunteers to pack the senior boxes each month.
Open registration for the PA Senior Food Box program begins in March.
