Shenandoah Area Agency on Aging -Food Drive

SAAA’s Care Management – In Home Services Department has been distributing donated food from several sources and giving it to our clients that are really in need at the time we assess/reassess or if the need arises. It started out with food that was donated to us, and it has really turned out to be something that has benefitted some very needy seniors.  We would like very much to see if 2 or 3 times a year NAS could request donations be brought to the meetings to restock the SAAA Pantry.  We are looking for healthy, high protein foods to supplement some of our seniors nutritional needs. Below are suggestions including some other non-food needed items at the bottom of the list.

 

Below is a list of types of food that we are hoping to collect:

 

Cereal – Oatmeal, Cream of Wheat, Grits, Cheerios, Shredded Wheat, Raisin Bran…

Pancake mix – Syrup
