The Food Program also provides food gift certificates to qualified, low-income senior households in San Miguel County and the west-end of Montrose County, many of whom do not have transportation. The gift certificate is for the grocery store closest to the senior's household and enables them to choose the foods they can and wish to eat. Seniors eligible for the Elder Food Program must be 60 years or older, currently receiving assistance from Social Services or have an income of $1,180 per month or less.
"I'm on a pretty low fixed income and I have $240 of over the counter medications every three months. ¦to receive a Clarks card coming just in time to help for food when I was trying to round up my medication money, I just can't thank you enough!"
