Help Senior Nutrition Program help others in San Luis Obispo County

I was pleased to read the wonderful endorsement of Cambria’s Senior Nutrition Program in Kathe Tanner’s Oct. 29 column. Readers should know, however, that the Senior Nutrition Program operates countywide, and these same delicious meals are offered at nine other sites throughout San Luis Obispo County, from Morro Bay to Santa Margarita, Paso Robles to Nipomo.

Senior Nutrition Program provides on-site congregate dining and home-delivered meals for the homebound at 10 sites throughout the county. And as Kathe mentioned, the program is “chronically underfunded.” We receive only half of our funding from increasingly uncertain federal and state funds; we must raise the rest.

For information about how to donate to this wonderful program, visit www.snpslo.org or call 541-3312. On the website, you can also see photos from our Executive Director Elias Nimeh’s recent 30-day, 500-mile pilgrimage on Spain’s Camino de Santiago.
