New food support project for Fillmore

The Fillmore Senior Center is checking into THE TREASURE BOX food support program for Fillmore. If there is interest from Fillmore residents, the Center will make arrangements to take orders and distribute the food monthly.

This outreach for families in our community has no age or financial limitations. It is open to anyone with an interest in securing food at reasonable price on a monthly basis. The food would be delivered frozen to the Senior Center with families picking up their order the same day. A Treasure Box is 22-25 lb. box of high quality food. It includes 9-12 lbs. of protein (beef, chicken, etc) vegetables, fruit, side dishes and a dessert for only $30. This box contains enough food to feed a family of four lunch and dinner for almost a week, or an individual for about a month.

Anyone can participate; there are no restrictions or requirements. Food orders are taken ahead of time and $30 paid in advance. The program is very successful in Moorpark and other areas in the County. If you might be interested in participating, or helping with the distribution, call the Senior Center. 524-4533.

If there is enough interest, the project will move along with possible delivery within 2 months.

Everyone can benefit from less expensive, high quality food.
