May Is Older Americans Month
Now is the time to speak together
and help #SolveSeniorHunger


This Older Americans Month, we are shedding light on the issue of senior hunger and its negative effects on senior health. 30% of seniors who rely on food pantries report that they have had to choose between paying for food and paying for medical care. The message is simple. Hunger affects people of all ages and data shows that it hits seniors especially hard. We're working to ensure that seniors in need are provided with nutritious food. Together we can help #SolveSeniorHunger.
