The High Plains Food Bank plans to expand a senior adult food program to Canyon, Claude, and Hedley in an efforts to offer eligible senior adults a resource for quality, supplemental nutrition.
High Plains Food Bank’s Emily Bell about the outreach:
The food bank will host 2 qualifying events on May 24th in Claude and in Hedley, TX. The hope is to attract local seniors in those cities, as well as those in surrounding communities. Seniors attending a these events will need to bring identification and proof of income. Those who qualify will receive a supplemental box of food during the course of the outreach event.
Below are event dates, times and service areas.
