CenCal Health Supports Senior Nutrition on the Central Coast
The Community Action Commission and Meals That Connect, hosted their annual fundraising events during the month of May. Both organizations raised money to continue the efforts of providing nutritious meals to seniors on the Central Coast. CenCal Health is proud to collaborate and help fund these two organizations that do so much in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo County.
Both organizations don't just provide necessary nutrition to seniors, they provide so much more! Community Action Commission's Senior Nutrition Program and Meals That Connect provide free nutritious meals every weekday to many seniors throughout both counties. A dining room experience gives seniors the opportunity to gather, share stories and build relationships, thereby reducing isolation.
For seniors who are not able to leave their homes, the friendly volunteer staff of both The Community Action Commission and Meals That Connect bring their meals to them. Sometimes these volunteers are the only visitors these seniors will see that day. This is something they look forward to most during their day, and in some cases the only person they may interact with that day.
Thank you, Community Action Commission and Meals that Connect, for all the help you do for the seniors and our communities in Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo County!
