Flagstaff Family Food Bank has been working to identify Seniors as part of its participation in the Coconino County COVID program. I know that they would share their information with you.
Sepp Sprietsma
49:45
Will this be launching in Pima County? Through CFB?
Kenneth Steel (He/Him), Pinnacle Prevention
50:36
Lauren are you able to throw your contact info in the chat? Sounds like some folks may want to connect
Mark Barnes
51:47
what capacity do you have to refer the senior to other services if necessary?
Liz Taylor
54:31
I am very grateful that we are having this discussion today and so glad that Seniors are a focus of these efforts. Looking at how many seniors were not getting food during the last months that they had signed up for makes me worry about what they have been eating in the meantime. I know in Flagstaff that the Foodbank was tracking this and delivering food very early on and that boxes at regular pick ups were dispersed widely.
