SECC partners with Green Heart Kitchen to provide fresh, hot and healthy meals to our clients Monday through Friday. Unfortunately, not everyone has the means necessary to pay for their meals. This is where you come in. Due to the increased demand for subsidized or free meals for local seniors, SECC has decided to raise money this Giving Tuesday to go towards these meals.
“It is heartbreaking to know that 1 in 10 seniors in Windsor and Essex County live in poverty,” states Executive Director Carolyn Warkentin. “We are committed to helping those in need in our community, and we are asking for financial support this Giving Tuesday to allow us to help more low-income seniors.”
The impact that meal deliveries have on our clients lives is immeasurable. “The meals have truly been life changing for me. I rarely saw veggies or fruits because of the cost and not being sure I’d be able to stand in place in the kitchen to prepare them,” shares a current Meals on Wheels Client. “That is what I mean by life changing.”
