Our project aims to tackle the problem of social isolation and food insecurity amongst the older adult population. It explores service models that provide regular, nutritious meals and boost opportunities for social connection at the same time.

Our project aims to work with DoorDash to make access to meals more equitable and accessible to older adults as well as explore ways of reducing social isolation through regular delivery services that aid Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADLs).
