Thousands of elderly and disabled people in our community live on fixed incomes or limited social security benefits and often sacrifice nutritious, necessary food to pay for critical prescriptions, housing, utilities, and medical care. In Pierce County, Washington, the second largest county with 12% of the state's population, 1 in 6 citizens are food insecure, 12.4% live in poverty, 10.1% under the age of 65 live with a disability, and 55% of those 65+ live with a chronic disease. Healthy, fresh food is critical to the good health and wellbeing of this underserved, vulnerable population.

 Eloise Cooking Pot Food Bank is the third largest food bank in the county with the largest home delivery program. Of the clients we serve, 45% receive home delivery due to health barriers that keep them homebound, unable to access normal food bank services. Home delivery serves the elderly and disabled in subsidized housing who struggle to acquire the healthy food they desperately need and reduces the safety barriers most of them experience when trying to obtain it.  Home delivery is available four days per week with meal boxes averaging 25 lbs. of fresh and prepackaged food, enough for about 6 meals. 

MADF is raising funding to purchase a second home delivery truck for this home delivery program, which is a critical service to helping the low-income seniors and disabled people fighting hunger and nutrition issues.

Making A Difference Foundation (MADF)

MADF is asking for help to raise $10,000 to purchase a delivery truck which will support food deliveries to seniors and disabled people in subsidized housing who can't come to the on-site food bank. This additional truck will help us provide more deliveries to the area's most vulnerable citizens.
