Combat senior hunger and loneliness

Are you looking for a hero? Look in the mirror!!! There's a need in our community to fight senior hunger and isolation. You can help by participating in the 8th Annual Miles for Meals 5K! 

You will be helping people like, Lois.

After a cancer diagnosis, Lois experienced a host of medical complications and severe weight loss. She had to relearn how to walk, speak, read, and write. “The whole experience left me feeling like a Raggedy Ann,” says Lois. “I was too weak to sit up at first, and didn’t have the strength to put a pan on the stove or even boil an egg.”

Lois enrolled in the Meals on Wheels program before she left the hospital and has since received five meals a week for the past seven years.  Thanks to continued healing and consistent nutrition through SCI’s Meals on Wheels program, Lois feels better than she has in quite some time and is happy to be alive.

 “You never know when you will become seriously ill or injured, and at the mercy of strangers for help, but I am so grateful to Senior Citizens and all those who support this wonderful organization. They provide so many services for elderly people in our community. And, the staff and volunteers are so caring, kind, and helpful. I consider them my family and friends!," Lois says.

TOO MANY SENIORS IN GEORGIA ARE LEFT BEHIND, ALONE AND HUNGRY, STRUGGLING TO STAY INDEPENDENT AND HEALTHY.

Nationally, 1 in 6 seniors struggle with hunger.

In Georgia, 

  • 411,645 are isolated, living alone
  • 319,093 are fighting hunger
  • 555,612 are living in or near poverty

You can make a difference with your participation in this 5K is as many ways as you wish:
