During the global coronavirus pandemic of 2020-22, our seniors felt abandoned. With little to no access to fresh foods and medications, they sat in their senior-living apartments and wondered what would happen to them.

KOCO responded by organizing KOCO Serves. Every week we bought healthy, fresh foods, bagged them up and delivered them to 7,000 seniors living in Bronzeville. By 2022, we had more than doubled the number of seniors served to 15,000.

We stepped in when city, state and federal agencies were unwilling or unable to provide the resources to give seniors the support they needed during a worldwide crisis.

Our thanks came from the seniors themselves, who were genuinely touched that someone remembered them and looked out for them. Our seniors are a valuable source of wisdom, guidance and companionship. We are proud to serve them.
