In 2018, the first full year of the program, more than 9,000 senior boxes were distributed.
Proxies are encouraged to be part of this program to deliver and pick up food. The proxy can be a relative, friend, neighbor, caregiver, or any trusted individual authorized to pick up a food box on behalf of an eligible senior.
