Original Release: 7/6/2021
Community Partnership on Aging and the Heights-Hillcrest Regional Chamber of Commerce (HRCC) challenge YOU to #StepUp2ThePlate!
The COVID-19 pandemic forced us to rethink our personal security on many levels. We took action to protect ourselves and our families... but what about those who are less fortunate, or don't have the resources, or are without family nearby? Who will protect them?!
In 2020, CPA's Nutrition Programs saw a 366% increase in use, signaling a need and desire for healthy, affordable and safe meal options for older adults! This challenged us to think: COULD we serve more? ARE we serving every older adult that we can? HOW can our meals help those who might fall through the cracks?
As we began our research and started talking about a plan to combat food insecurity for older adults, HRCC stepped up to partner with CPA for a fundraising campaign, aptly titled, Step Up to the Plate; recognizing that "healthy communities mean healthy businesses." This campaign will assist CPA in providing additional meals for the older residents of our service area.
