Many seniors, especially black seniors, suffer from various health issues and do not have access to healthy food for several reasons, including living in a food desert. This issue was greatly exacerbated by COVID-19 because even seniors who could go to a grocery store or restaurant have had legitimate fears of doing so due to their age and pre-existing health conditions that make them high risk. To respond to this issue, For The Struggle's Senior Feeding Program was created with the support from the Appalachian Community Fund. See more below.
We love our seniors!
