As stated in a recent announcement, Senior Helpers of Northern Colorado, together with FoCo Café, Jay’s Bistro, Fort Collins Delivery Network, The Alternative Board – Northern Colorado, Me Oh My Café and Mill City Church, is coordinating meal deliveries and pickup sites to support families in need. The meals, created by Jay’s Bistro for Easter and by FoCo Café ongoing, are hand-delivered to Senior Helpers clients, low-income independent living senior apartments, homeless community members, families with school-aged students and more. The company has also collaborated with Me Oh My Café and Mill City Church to set up pickup points for local families to safely obtain meals to take home. The initiative began Easter Sunday with a brunch menu consisting of Glazed Ham & Herb-crusted Leg of Lamb, Bistro Potatoes, Deviled Eggs and much more, and FoCo Café anticipates delivering meals ongoing to those in need within the community during these uncertain times. The organizations delivered over 250 meals on Easter Sunday alone.
“With schools closed until the fall and older adults relying on others to bring them groceries so that they stay out of harm’s way, we know that far too many families in our communities are struggling to obtain daily essentials like food,” said Gil Atanasoff, owner and executive director at Senior Helpers of Northern Colorado. “We knew we had to do something more to help our clients, their families and others throughout Northern Colorado, and we are so grateful for our partners who have given us the opportunity to be involved in the distribution of meals to those who need it most.”
Senior Helpers of Northern Colorado and its caregivers are available to continue providing immediate care and support for the local senior community and their families. Senior Helpers will continue to be transparent with any new developments and will provide any further updates as necessary.

In true holiday spirit, our community banded together to provide more than 225 Easter meals to families and individuals in need. Jay's Bistro provided all these free meals partly sponsored by local businesses and matching donations from The Alternative Board – Worldwide. With help from our internal staff and Fort Collins Delivery Network, we were able to get these delicious meals to gracious homes.
