Efforts include helping fight senior hunger in support of Hunger Action Month
“I have a lot of health problems. I have a condition where I have to really watch what I eat. When you are living off a little, it’s tough,” said Vern Hill, a client of Second Harvest Food Bank of Middle Tennessee.
Vern, like many senior citizens in Middle and Western Tennessee, lives on a fixed income – forced to make the tough choice between paying for groceries or paying for medical bills.
“If the [Second Harvest Food] boxes weren’t delivered, I don’t know what I would do,” he said.
Jackson National Life Insurance Company believes that no person should have to make those tough choices, which is why they are continuing to support the Senior Nutrition Program, serving 288 seniors each month.
Our Senior Nutrition Program provides food-insecure seniors with a monthly food box. Each box is packed with 15-20 senior-appropriate food items that have been selected by our Registered Dietician.
In addition to funding Mobile Food Pantries and a generous donation towards Second Harvest’s COVID-19 relief efforts, Jackson employees have donated more than 1,000 hours of volunteer time to help end hunger in our community since the beginning of their partnership with the Food Bank.
Thank you to Jackson for taking action and providing essential food for some of Middle and West Tennessee’s most vulnerable populations.
