The need has never been greater for low-income senior citizens in central New Mexico. Rising food costs, lost wages and more households led by seniors have all contributed to more seniors seeking assistance from the nonprofit Silver Horizons, according to executive director Ron Hidalgo – and that was before the pandemic.
“We continue to see more and more seniors seeking assistance,” he said.
While the nonprofit is continuing its normal assistance programs, for the remainder of June, it also will host weekly senior food markets at community centers around the county.
