Los Angeles is home to the largest estimated population of food-insecure people, nearly 1.5 million, of which 1.1 million represent OLDER adults.
Every day, vulnerable older adults must choose between eating a meal and paying for rent. At St. Barnabas Senior Services (SBSS), we want to ensure that no senior has to make that choice.
SBSS serves 500 hot lunches every weekday at 14 community meal sites. Participants enjoy nutritious lunches at each site and socialize with peers and community members. Congregate meals are provided in partnership with Golden Dragon and Buchun Gamjatang.
Each weekday, 500 hot meals are delivered to homebound older adults in need. The meals are not only nutritious, but also provide older adults with an opportunity to socialize and keep connected. Meals in Mid-City are provided in partnership with St. Vincent Meals on Wheels.
In partnership with the Los Angeles Regional Food Bank, SBSS provides food to over 250 low-income older adults. Participants receive two bags of groceries to help provide meals throughout the month. The Food Bank is the first Wednesday of every month at our Mid-City Senior Center.
