RSF Foundation Funds Food Truck for Seniors
In an effort to help provide food security and socialization for vulnerable seniors in three North County communities, the Rancho Santa Fe Foundation (RSFF) is funding an innovative program with the Thyme Together food truck to serve nutritious lunches to seniors five days a week, except holidays, at four mobile home parks and one faith center in San Marcos, Oceanside, and Vista. “We’re providing a mobile senior center,” said Paula Powers, RSF Foundation Grants and Projects Committee Chair and RSF resident. “Our research told us that a lack of adequate transportation would be an obstacle to seniors traveling to a central location for food and socialization, so we’re bringing those necessities to them.” This North County Senior Connections program is a collaboration between many different organizations, including Dreams for Change, Interfaith Community Services, ProduceGood, and the Jacobs & Cushman San Diego Food Bank. Paula continued, “I am honored to work with the board and staff of the RSF Foundation to provide such an impactful program to meet the needs of the aging population in our neighboring communities.” For more information visit bit.ly/ThymeTogether.
