May is Older Americans Month
Shopping Senior Citizen
We're participating in Older Americans Month to raise awareness about the 1 in 12 seniors in our country who are food insecure.  Here are some ways you can help spread the word!

1. Create an #endseniorhunger sign and pose for a photo with a senior you know. Post the picture on any social media platform and ask others to do the same.

2. Host a Solve Senior Hunger food drive and collect food items specifically needed by seniors citizens.

3. Contact congress and encourage them to support senior feeding programs such as The Senior Farmers’ Market Nutrition Program.
