Senior Services has received $3,000 from the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation to help provide nutritious meals for older adults being served by the agency. Senior Services will specifically use the gift to support the purchase of food for their Meals-on-Wheels program.

“We’re grateful to the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation for their support in helping us to provide nutritional support to older adults, who happen to be members of one the most susceptible groups to food insecurity in our community. Too many older adults in Forsyth County are forced to choose between purchasing food and other vital necessities, such as medicine. This grant will help prevent more people from facing those types of choices,” said T. Lee Covington, president & CEO of Senior Services. 

Senior Services is a nonprofit organization that helps older adults living in Forsyth County remain at home, living with dignity and aging with purpose through a variety of supportive programs and services. The $3,000 grant will go a long way toward purchasing food for their Meals-on-Wheels program, which typically delivers meals to over 1,200 seniors each weekday.

Established in 2001, the Food Lion Feeds Charitable Foundation provides financial support for programs and organizations dedicated to feeding the hungry in the communities it serves. Since its inception, the foundation has awarded more than $12 million in grants.

Senior Services is a private, nonprofit agency, that has been operating in Winston-Salem for more than 56 years, with a mission to help older adults in Forsyth County remain at home for as long as possible, living with dignity. Senior Services currently has seven major programs that respond to the needs of the elderly: The Elizabeth and Tab Williams Adult Day Center, Meals-On-Wheels, Help Line, Home Care, Senior Lunch, Living-at-Home, and Elder Care Choices. Individuals wishing to volunteer or donate can call 336-725-0907 or visit seniorservicesinc.org.
