Most of the seniors we assist live on less than $900 per month. Our mission is to see low income seniors living safe and secure, in their own homes, with enough food to eat.
Eating right, and having enough food to eat is a problem for many seniors and their grandchildren in our state. New Mexico is first in the nation for childhood hunger, and one of the worst states in the nation for senior hunger and for senior malnutrition.
According to a recent Roadrunner Food Bank report, more than 46% of seniors have had to choose between paying for food and utilities, and 61% report choosing between food and medical care. Many of these same seniors on fixed incomes are also raising their grandchildren. Now you have two
generations of vulnerable people facing hunger together.
With volunteer assistance, we are expanding our services and delivering to many more needy seniors and their grandchildren in Central New Mexico. We exist because of volunteer and donors from the community.
Proceeds from the event support Silver Horizons’ programs for seniors including free groceries, household bill assistance, and minor home repairs.
