Once each month, Second Harvest, First Pentecostal Church Palm Bay and Bethany Baptist partner to provide 1500 meals to 164 low income seniors residing at Trinity Towers in Melbourne. Each resident receives 9 meals or more every month which allows the residents to use more of their money on much needed prescriptions to keep them well. Many of these residents lack the resources to access or prepare food due to lack of transportation, functional limitations, or health problems.
It takes 15 volunteers the first Saturday of every month 1.5 hours to bag and deliver the food to the residents. The hugs from the residents are a bonus.
Volunteers are always needed and they can contact Valerie Carl at 321.733.1600.
