To help senior Chattanoogans who are facing food insecurity or uncertainty, the Kitchen Incubator of Chattanooga recently began serving meals through the Senior Hunger Project.
The project serves 450 seniors and delivers two meals — precooked, reheatable meals featuring a meat, two vegetables, and a bread — each week. For 10 weeks, the project will help feed seniors in the Glenwood Avenue area, at Boynton Terrace and Mary Walker Towers, clients of Widow’s Harvest, and veterans at Piney Woods.
Meal deliveries began the week of Jan. 11, and by the time the program is complete, ~10,000 meals will be served.
The effort is in partnership with FABRIC (a local initiative working to address Chattanooga’s food insecurity issues), Gordon Food Services, and food services provider Waypoint, along with federal funding through EFSP.
