Hampered by limited incomes and confronted with the high costs for medicine and housing, one in ten of Alabama’s seniors find themselves without enough food to eat each month. The Brown Bag is a food program that provides monthly supplementary groceries for seniors sixty and older who live below the poverty level, and more than 560 senior households are enrolled. The annual cost to provide this service to a senior is $100. There is no cost to the seniors that are served and funding comes from individual donors, churches, civic clubs and other organizations.
