The Michigan's Coordinated Access to Food for the Elderly (MiCafe) project makes it easier for seniors to get the food they need to live healthy lives through the Food Assistance Program. The purpose of the Food Assistance Program is to end hunger and improve nutrition and health for all citizens. It helps low income households buy the food they need and maintain their health and independence. This assistance is provided through electronic benefits that can be used just like cash at most grocery stores. For more information or to schedule an appointment, call your local Senior Center.
