Access to in-home, supportive care for seniors is extremely limited.

The program provides home delivered meals, chronic meal plans, veggie mobile deliveries, senior monthly food boxes, and social activities that include congregation meals, nutrition education and community involvement. Each week the center’s Senior Veggie Mobile takes fresh and locally grown produce to our frail and elderly shut-ins in the “Heart of Boynton” area (zip code 33435), Delray Beach (zip code 33484), & Boca Raton (zip code 33433). It includes the bounty from the urban farm along with produce from gleaning programs and fresh produce purchased from local farmers. The program offers an opportunity for case managers to provide a friendly visit, check for signs of malnutrition and dehydration, provide additional assistance (affordable food boxes, meals, registration assistance for SNAP benefits) if needed, and offer healthy nutritious chronic food options...
