The "WHY" of the fundraiser:

Older Iowans and their caregivers are experiencing food insecurity at an increasing rate due to inflation and the overall cost of living. Many rely on the Elderbridge congregate and home-delivered meals for their primary daily food intake.

State and federal funding for meal programs has not increased to meet the growing demand for older Iowans’ nutritional assistance.

Elderbridge is asking for assistance for our congregate and home-delivered meals. Sponsorship and donation support will assist us in reducing the need for waiting lists for our nutrition programs.

All donations received may be designated to specific meal sites/counties or the general nutrition budget and be sent directly to Elderbridge.

Under the Older Americans Act participants who meet the following criteria are considered Eligible diners and can eat with a confidential voluntary contribution.

• Any individual age 60 or older and that individual’s spouse (regardless of age)
• An individual with disabilities of any age who is living and dining with an individual 60 or over.
• An individual with disabilities of any age who is living in a senior housing complex where Senior Nutrition Program meals are served.
• A volunteer providing service during meal hours.
