Antioch senior pantry provides food, nutrition for elderly


With its mission of delivering food to the elderly, the Antioch Senior Mobile Pantry plays a critical role in the lives of many area residents. The Senior Mobile Pantry was founded about six years ago as one of the many facets of Antioch Consolidated Association for Youth and Family. Charolette Tidwell, the Antioch Executive Director, said it was created to provide seniors in the Fort Smith area with the food they need to live on their own. "The independent living is a focus we've made as a strategy to be able to keep these persons independent, cooking their own food, their normal activities of daily living, they can continue," Tidwell said. "That is important from the aspect of keeping them healthier, more satisfied mentally when they're able to fix their own food." One of the inspirations for the mobile pantry came from Tidwell witnessing an elderly woman at a grocery store buying cat food.
