In addition to bolstering physical health, studies prove that eating fresh foods can alleviate symptoms of depression and anxiety, improve memory, prevent insomnia, and regulate moods. While affording and obtaining fresh foods can be difficult for many low-income, mobility-challenged seniors, grants from Cal Fresh and Farm Fresh have enabled The Heart of Ida to deliver boxes of farm fresh fruits and vegetables directly to seniors’ doorsteps. The Heart of Ida team assists qualifying seniors with applications and registration for both services and coordinates volunteer deliveries.
