[ARCHIVED] COUNCIL CHAIR TODD M. TURNER TO HOST DISTRICT 4 SENIORS “GRAB- AND-GO” MEAL EVENTS

Supporting Seniors in Bowie and Greenbelt Communities

Prince George’s County Council Chair Todd M. Turner (D) – District 4, in partnership with the Prince George’s County Department of Family Services and the cities of Bowie and Greenbelt, will host two “District 4 Seniors Grab-and-Go Meals” drive-up events. The free drive-up events will be held in Greenbelt on Wednesday, July 29, at the Greenbelt Community Center, 15 Crescent Road, and Friday, July 31, in the Bowie Senior Center Parking Lot, 14900 Health Center Drive in Bowie. Both events are from 10:00 to 11:00 a.m.

The “District 4 Seniors Grab-and-Go Meals” events will distribute pre-packaged meals prepared by Martin’s Catering to residents 60 years and better in District 4. Each box will contain one breakfast and three lunch meals, pre-cooked and frozen for convenience.

Council Chair Turner, who represents the cities of Greenbelt and Bowie as the District 4 Council Member, says supporting seniors has become even more critical as families continue to struggle with food insecurities resulting from COVID-19.

“While the COVID-19 pandemic prevented us from hosting the ‘Annual District 4 Senior Luncheon’ events this year, we are continuing to serve the needs of our seniors and honoring their community contributions. Many of our senior residents were vulnerable pre-pandemic, and as families continue to struggle with food insecurities resulting from COVID-19, we are privileged for the opportunity to host these events and provide this support.”

Registered seniors should wear a mask and stay in their cars. Staff will be on hand to provide parking lot guidance, collect registrations and obtain check-in information. One food box per registrant will be provided and placed in the truck or back seat. This is a non-contact event and all staff and volunteers will wear protective equipment.

Pre-registration is required for the “District 4 Seniors Grab-and-Go Meals” event. For additional information, questions, or to register by phone, please contact District 4 Outreach Coordinator Evelyn Archie at 240.619.9775 or by e-mail at EJArchie@co.pg.md.us.
