Sowega Council on Aging Senior Resource Fair Friday

Staff Report From Georgia CEO

Tuesday, May 14th, 2024

Sowega Council on Aging (SCOA) is excited to announce their Summer Regional Senior Resource Fair to be held on Friday, May 17, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Sowega Council on Aging Regional Resource Center, 335 W. Society Avenue, in Albany, Georgia. This free event, serving seniors and caregivers from Dougherty, Lee, Terrell, and Worth counties, seeks to connect seniors with resources that are designed to improve the lives of the aging community.

A main part of the event is the inclusion of the Georgia Seniors Farmers Market Nutrition Program – a federally funded program that offers fresh fruits and vegetables to eligible participants at approved market sites each year. Farmers Market participants also receive nutrition and health education on the benefits of fresh fruits and vegetables.

The Senior Farmer’s Market portion of the Senior Resource Fair is based on the availability of local farmers and their crops. If farmers and crops are not available at the scheduled time, the Farmers Market portion of the event will be canceled, but the Senior Resource Fair will continue.

In addition to the Farmers Market, participants will enjoy free giveaways and can connect with other Aging Network Providers to learn more about services and activities to enrich their lives.

“We love events like these because they are at the heart of our mission,” said Izzie Sadler, Executive Director of SCOA. “We coordinate a system of services for seniors. That means SCOA is a resourcing organization – we connect people with the services and providers they need.”
