Better quality + increased variety = Increased satisfaction.

It’s a formula that works. And it’s also the results of a recent survey of South Jersey seniors who are participating in the Food Bank of South Jersey’s SNRS (Senior Nutrition Resource Supplement) program.

Seniors are one of the most vulnerable populations that the food bank serves. Many seniors must make the difficult choice of whether to pay for food or medical needs, or spend limited resources on utilities or meals.

“Making sure we meet the needs of seniors is critical to FBSJ,” said Chris Luebbe, Senior Manager, Programs and Services. “We wanted to design a program that would improve access to healthy, nutritious food.”

Launched one year ago, the new SNRS program’s objective was to improve seniors’ access to nutritious food and to find ways to meet their specific nutritional needs. A year later, the program received positive reviews across the board.

According to the recent survey, 77 percent of seniors in the program reported easier access and 62 percent are more satisfied with the SNRS program.

The program currently feeds 1,000 seniors every month at 21 locations throughout Burlington, Camden, Gloucester and Salem counties. FBSJ is currently exploring ways it could expand the programs and better serve our seniors.
