Senior hunger - it's a huge problem in our community, where many men and women in this vulnerable population face a constant and difficult choice between medication and groceries. It's a choice no one should have to face.

Catholic Charities' Food Service Program provides meals to schools, community groups, and - more recently - home-bound seniors, all while providing employment opportunities for people with disabilities or mental illnesses.
