Exploring Food Insecurity: How Do We Fill Our Plates?

This program was generously sponsored by Hannaford Supermarkets.

Out of 78 million people age 60 and over, 7.1% are food insecure and 2.7% experience very low food security in the United States*. In this webinar, we explore the issues that contribute to food insecurity and how different Northern New England states are addressing food insecurity among older people. Presenters share success stories and answer questions about best practices and lessons learned while we discuss the state of food insecurity in the U.S. and share what we are doing to help older adults by getting nutritious food and resources out into our communities.
