Coastal View News: Brown Bag Program feeds local seniors

The Foodbank of Santa Barbara County’s free Brown Bag Program supplies local low-income seniors with a bounty of fresh groceries twice a month. Single seniors over the age of 60 whose household income is less than $1,507 qualify for the program, as well as seniors in larger households with low incomes. Participants can pick up three bags filled with fresh produce and protein-rich, shelf-stable foods on the second and fourth Tuesday of each month, between 9 and 10 a.m. at the Carpinteria Veterans Hall, 941 Walnut Ave. Coordinator Pat Beals said that people in need who have trouble picking up food, should contact her at 807-7337 to discuss delivery.
