LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

Comfort Keepers supports local seniors with limited resources through the Feed Seniors Now program.

Through the Feed Seniors Now initiative in September, Comfort Keepers is partnering with Lubbock Meals on Wheels (LMOW) to collect food and funds to fully support the LMOW weekend meals bag program.

Recipients of this program have no other means to obtain weekend food other than that provided through Lubbock Meals on Wheels. 

Feed Seniors Now would like to collect single serving sizes of Ensure/Boost/Glucerna, instant oatmeal, instant cream of wheat, canned or packaged meals, peanuts, goldfish, pretzels, cheese and crackers, peanut butter crackers, soup, juice boxes, chips, tuna and chicken. 

Each weekend meal bag contains a frozen meal, plus 10-12 of the above items.

Feed Seniors Now encourages businesses and organizations to host their own food drives for the specific items listed on the grocery list then deliver to Comfort Keepers (or call for pickup) by September 30th.

Comfort Keepers is located at 2517 74th Street in Lubbock.
