CHEF Webinar: SNAP Education and Outreach for Older Adults

Tuesday February 27, 2024

This program was generously sponsored by Hannaford Supermarkets.

About 4.8 million older adults are enrolled in SNAP, but this figure represents less than half of the eligible population with around three out of five older people who qualify missing out on benefits, nearly 5 million people in all.* How are we successfully connecting older adults in our states to the food assistance programs available to them? In this webinar we will discuss organizational efforts in outreach and education to older adults around food benefits, including the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program.
