Emergency Senior Meal Relief Distribution set for January 20, 2021

The very first 2021 Emergency Senior Meal Relief distribution date has been set by SCA’s Executive Director, Linda Mitchell Johnson. Three hundred (300) shelf stable meals will be available to the Florence County Senior Community (*SCA non clients) experiencing health issues and/or limitations. “We will provide 14 non-perishable meals in one box to eligible senior citizens who have been approved. There is a great need and the telephones are super busy, so please remember, you must speak with someone to be approved for pickup. If you have received a box in the past, you will still be responsible to call and apply even if this means being put on a waiting list. We encourage every senior in need to call, this helps us measure the need. SCA will implement new procedures to maintain fairness during the new year distributions”, clarifies Marketing Coordinator Jesseca Bonnoitt. Designated staff started registering seniors January 4, 2021. The drive-thru pick up service will be at the following locations and times:
