Senior Blessings

PHP is aware that sometimes a grandparent may go without food to feed the rest of their family. Often, living on social security alone is not enough to make it through the month with food. PHP's Senior Blessings program provides supplemental groceries to seniors throughout Hernando County. PHP volunteers pack and deliver groceries to elderly individuals living in subsidized low-income  communities or neighborhoods. Bags are filled with items such as canned vegetables and fruits, tuna, canned chicken, soups, pastas with meat, beans, applesauce, puddings, and snacks. These items are mostly purchased at a discounted cost through the Community Food Bank, making your financial donation even more important.
