Senior Food Box Distribution (Van Buren)

March 7 @ 10:30 am - 11:00 am

Getting food and good nutrition is something all people need to remain healthy
and happy. Whether it is a meal in a dining center, one delivered to the home, or a shelf stable
commodity to help extend the monthly food budget, staff at the Aroostook Agency on Aging can
connect older persons or those who are disabled to a service that will help meet their needs.

Every week fresh and frozen meals are prepared and packaged for home delivery around the region. On
top of that, in partnership with the Commodity Supplemental Food Program (CSFP) and Catholic
Charities of ME, efforts are made to improve the health of qualifying persons at least 60 years of age by
supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA foods. Commodity food items are distributed monthly in
communities throughout northern Maine to persons who have enrolled in the program.

Thanks to the hard work of volunteers who care about their neighbors, the effort to reduce hunger
continues every month and nutritional food is being delivered to older persons and others who are
unable to leave their homes to shop on their own.

For those who can leave their home or who have a caregiver or helper who can run errands, food box
distributions are set up each month in towns throughout northern Maine. Efforts are made to keep the
time of month and the locations of these events consistent.

The regular Senior Commodity Food Program distribution takes place from 10:30 to 11
a.m. in the parking lot of the American Legion at 117 Washington Avenue. To enroll in this program,
please contact the Aroostook Agency on Aging at 764-3396/1-800-439-1789
