The Share the Plate recipient for March is the Independent Seniors Network.

The Independent Seniors Network is a non-profit, volunteer organization that supports aging in place in the greater Portland area. Volunteers provide services, social connections, and activities for members, helping both members and volunteers to maintain active, social, safe, and independent lives.

Volunteer services provided include transportation, errands, light house and yard work, technology assistance to stay connected with family and friends, and social visits. All services are geared towards helping seniors take advantage of their village community while living in their own homes. Although it is a volunteer-staffed network, donations help defray administrative costs such as marketing, government fees, volunteer appreciation, background checks, and scholarships for members with limited income.
