St. Johns charity raises money to buy healthy food for seniors

Published on May 1, 2024 at 12:29 pm

Pie in the Sky, a St. Augustine-based nonprofit organization, is hosting its annual For the Birds fundraiser to help fund the charity’s efforts to make healthy food accessible for seniors. 

The group focuses on making sure seniors living at or below the poverty line in the St. Augustine area are able to access healthy food. Senior Program Manager Phyllis Wood says every penny raised by the For the Birds fundraiser and every other event the group hosts goes directly toward helping seniors.

Jacksonville Today thanks our sponsors. Become one.

“We are the vegetable people, the produce people,” she said. “Today, 2,700 pounds of produce left our warehouse to go to 359 seniors. We deliver it directly to their door.”

People looking to support the charity have until May 8 to bid online on items that include custom birdhouses made by local artists and more. For more information about the charity and the fundraiser, visit the group’s website here.
