Senior Box Program
In 2018, TFAC began offering the "Senior Box" program. Senior Box is a federally-funded program administered through the East Texas Food Bank and Tyler Family Assistance Center that provides qualifying senior citizens a free box of nutritious food on a monthly basis in addition to food assistance from the pantry. With the initial estimation and goal to enroll 60 seniors at our site, we currently have 90 seniors enrolled and more on a waiting list. Senior boxes are distributed on the 1st Monday of every month.
There are two requirements to qualify for the program age (60 years or old) and income. Please see a volunteer to inquire about eligibility.
Standards for participation in the program are the same for everyone regardless of race, color, national origin, age, sex or disability.
