Copper Country Senior Meals is Looking for More Locally Grown Foods

Tomorrow is the last day for local growers to register for the Copper Country Senior Meals’ open house. Senior Meals is hosting local food producers at their office next Monday, as the organization looks to fill a large need. Copper Country Senior Meals wants to implement more locally grown produce an food into their meals for local elderly residents for the meal delivery program. Through the open house the organization hopes to find local partners to accomplish that goal.

So, everyday we deliver a hot meal to 300 seniors in the Copper Country area. And we are looking to incorporate more locally produced foods. Whether that is vegetables, fruits, or even meat or fish. – Kathleen Harter, Executive Director of Copper Country Senior Meals

Farmers, seniors and CCSM all benefit from implementing more locally grown food into meals for residents. There is a sense of pride that delivery drivers, senior meals, and farmers get when working together, especially when working toward a quality life for elders in the community.  Local growers will take a short tour of Copper Country Senior Meals facility, as well as share one of the many healthy meals the organization delivers to seniors. Copper Country Senior Meals will then have a Q&A session to answer any questions farmers may have. Registration ends tomorrow. Contact Kathleen Harter with Copper Country Senior Meals at 906-483-1155 or by emailing main@coppercountryseniormeals.org with interest in the open house.
