Packing boxes for our senior food box program
Program Mission: Golden Harvest Food Bank provides at-risk seniors living on a fixed income with a free 20 pound box of groceries each month.
Last year we distributed over 400,000 pounds of food to an average of 1,549 seniors per month.
These senior food boxes are carefully prepared and packaged with the help of volunteers only at our Aiken warehouse.
