LULING – To give back this holiday season, Peoples Health has partnered with Second Harvest Food Bank and St. Charles Council on Aging to help area seniors celebrate Thanksgiving.
From 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Tuesday, November 16, members of the St. Charles Council on Aging Seniors Center will be able to enjoy their meals with a safe and socially remote drive-thru at the Luling Activity Center, located at 145 Angus Drive.
After the event, approximately 350 meals will be delivered to elderly people confined to their homes in Saint-Charles.
Peoples Health is the proud sponsor of Second Harvest Food Bank’s 10th Annual Thanksgiving and Holiday Meals for Seniors Program. This program provides more than 6,000 traditional holiday meals to local seniors in need. Food is prepared at Second Harvest Community Kitchen and distributed to locations in southern Louisiana.
Food insecure seniors have a variety of special considerations, including nutrient requirements, the ability to prepare meals, and accessibility to food stores. Many are in need of a variety of means of food assistance. Food insecurity also stems from natural disasters, and this region was severely affected by Hurricane Ida. By hosting this event, Peoples Health and Second Harvest Food Bank are able to provide nutritious and easy-to-prepare holiday meals for seniors to enjoy at home.
