Costco – Van Nuys
Every week Costco donates baked goods to our Senior Enrichment Center, giving low income older adults the opportunity pick up a bag of bagels, loaf of bread or a sweet treat.

Food Forward fights hunger and prevents food waste by rescuing fresh surplus produce, connecting this abundance with people in need and inspiring others to do the same. Food Forward sends volunteers to local homes in the San Fernando Valley with fruit trees in their yards to help collect the viable oranges, lemons, etc….The homeowners keep the amount they estimate they will be able to personally use and the excess is donated to local nonprofits such as ONEgeneration. If you have a tree on your property with more than you can use, please contact Food Forward and let them know that you would like to donate your fruit to ONEgeneration. These donations are given out to low income seniors at the Senior Enrichment Center as well as distributed with home-bound meals to frail older adults. https://foodforward.org/got-produce/got-fruit-trees/

SCAN Health Plan
SCAN’s mission is simple: Keeping Seniors Healthy and Independent. That’s been the SCAN mission since the organization was founded in 1977. It started when a group of senior activists in Long Beach, California got together, determined to improve access to the care and services they needed so they could stay as independent as possible. They brought together experts in medicine, gerontology, psychology and social services and formed the Senior Care Action Network, a not-for-profit health plan for people with Medicare. Now known as SCAN, they are still not-for-profit. And are still dedicated to helping members live how and where they choose, with the assistance they might need as they get older.
