Stockbox Program offered

FLORENCE, Wis. — The Aging and Disability Resource Center of Florence County, along with the Florence County Health Department and University of Wisconsin Extension-Florence, have forged a partnership with the Hunger Task Force’s Senior Stockbox Program.

The Senior Stockbox Program provides free healthy food every month to eligible seniors age 60 and older. Examples of Stockbox items include: juice, Wisconsin cheese, canned fruits and vegetables, peanut butter, canned meat, pasta, rice, cereal and more.

To be eligible for this program, recipients must be a Wisconsin resident age 60 or older, with a self-declared monthly gross household income of less than $1,580 for a one-person household and $2,137 for a two-person household — add $557 for each additional person.

Each eligible household member can receive a Stockbox.

These monthly boxes will be available for pick-up from Florence, Aurora, Tipler and Fence locations on pre-determined dates and times.

Registration is required. Call the ADRC of Florence County at 715-528-4890 for more information or to register.
