The program was started by the Second Harvest Food Bank and provides weekly groceries to people over 60, or disabled people 55 and older. Second Harvest serves more than 20,000 older adults each month through its Brown Bag and other food-assistance programs, said Second Harvest spokeswoman Caitlin Kerk.
The food bags include traditional items to make up a holiday meal, including a turkey roll.
This is the sixth annual holiday food bag donation sponsored by the firefighters. It's funded by members of Local 1965 through their Create a Smile Fund, geared toward helping those in need.
