Older Americans Month


May is Older Americans Month (OAM). One of the most detrimental issues that millions of older adults across the country face is food insecurity. Sadly, this population has experienced heightened rates of food insecurity in recent years. Many seniors are forced to make a tradeoff between paying for food and paying for other necessities like medication.

Food Lifeline and our partner food banks and meal programs work hard to combat senior hunger. Together, we can give back to those who have given us so much of their time, hard work and wisdom. Join us in celebrating Older Americans Month and help us #SolveSeniorHunger by ensuring all older Americans have the food they need to thrive.
