WHY: Senior hunger and isolation are serious issues in our community - 27,000 seniors are hungry in Contra Costa County and nearly 800 rely on our meal deliveries to survive. Community members will help build awareness so that local seniors are not forgotten.  Did you know that t he cost of feeding a senior for one year is less than the cost of one day in the hospital?  Please join us and show your support of Contra Costa County seniors. 

Your support is even more important in the wake of proposed funding cuts!
