The function of the Food for Seniors program is to eliminate hunger by providing nourishment and encouragement to senior citizens. This program provides a nutritional food box filled with non-perishable goods and healthy food staples. The Food for Seniors food boxes are served to seniors who are 60 years and older and meet the Federal Income Guidelines.

Each month, the Calcasieu Parish Police Jury Food for Seniors program holds food box distributions at 16 different sites throughout Calcasieu Parish.

The Parish’s funding of this program has significantly reduced the fear of hunger for thousands of senior citizens by eliminating their necessity to choose between expensive, life-supporting medications or food. This program is improving the overall longevity of its participants, thus reducing the public burden of out of home placements for senior citizens.
