WE NEED YOUR HELP ASAP!
The Tustin Community Foundation started Friends Feeding Seniors in April 2020 in response to the first COVID-19 shutdown after learning that our most vulnerable seniors could not, would not and should not venture out to the grocery store. Never did we assume that this would be more than a short term answer to a community need. Now, over a full year later, our wonderful volunteers are still delivering almost 2000 meals every month.
This important program is 100% funded by donations and now, unfortunately, our funding is running out so we turn to you, our generous community, to help us continue this program through May 2021 when we assume most seniors will have received the COVID-19 vaccination. In the unlikely event that funds received exceed the need for this program, funds will used to help meet Tustin area senior food insecurity in other ways.
A donation of any amount will be greatly appreciated and will be fully used to purchase meals from Friends Cafe so that our Tustin area seniors in need can remain home and healthy.
Many senior adults in the greater Tustin area do not have friends or family they can depend on for regular meal support and COVID has made it even more difficult. Current programs like Meals on Wheels provide food Monday through Friday. In partnership with Friend's Cafe, the FRIENDS FEEDING SENIORS program provides 3 nutritious weekend dinners to Tustin seniors in need so they can remain home and stay healthy during the COVID crisis.
This important program will be funded by donations received here and by BUY A MEAL - GIVE A MEAL specials on FRIDAYS at Friend's Cafe. For every adult meal purchased for curbside pick up or delivery, Friend's Cafe will donate a meal the Friends Feeding Seniors program.
100% of your online donation will be used to purchase meals for Tustin seniors in need who have been referred to the Tustin Community Foundation.
Even small donations, when added together, will make an impact in the life of a Tustin senior.
Do you know a homebound senior, someone recouperating or someone who has a difficult getting to the store? Only $15/week.
