Food and Nutrition Security
Today I met a delightful member of Spencer House while delivering an Easter Basket to her home. She was very surprised by and thankful for the basket, just as all receivers were. We were chatting about how lovely it was that these baskets were given out, when she also expressed her gratitude for the frozen meals that Spencer House staff delivered to members during Covid lockdowns.
“After receiving the frozen meals I realized I wasn’t eating properly.”, she said, she now has meals delivered regularly and attests to feeling a lot better. This statement was bittersweet to hear because it is why seniors need simple access to resources that provide well rounded meals! Healthy nutrition is a key aspect for seniors to stay independent. The basket and prior meal deliveries, and overall effort from Spencer House was clearly very meaningful to this lady. I am so happy we were able to provide it to her!
