Senior Food Program Delivery Help

Our Program: Better Housing Coalition (BHC) houses over 900 low-income seniors across our 8 age-restricted properties across Richmond and Petersburg - all but one of which are located in food deserts. We collaborate with Feed More and other area partners, to bring healthy food directly into communities at no cost to participants; with the average income of BHC's senior residents just under $15,000, this program key to providing much-needed budget relief and healthy options to those who have limited mobility and resources. Once a month, the food is delivered to our Lincoln Mews community in North Richmond and distributed directly to senior residents.

Volunteers: This activity is physical in nature, and volunteers should be able to lift 20-30 lbs. Volunteers will help receive the food delivery, move boxes into the community center, and organize the groceries to be distributed.

Attire: Please wear comfortable shoes and casual clothing that you don't mind getting dusty or dirty due to the handling of food products and boxes.
