-Green Valley-Sahuarita’s Nourishing News Newsletter (Spring 2013).
According to the study, Hunger in America 2010, 30 percent of seniors have had to choose between paying for food and paying for medical care.
This is now a reality for even more seniors as they find themselves unemployed during the recent economic downturn. Although food insecurity—not having access to enough food for an active or healthy life—affects people of all ages, older Americans are particularly at risk because they have unique nutritional needs related to aging and/or medical conditions. To meet these needs, seniors at risk of hunger often depend on local food pantries for help. Among food pantry clients 65 and older, more than half reported visiting on a monthly basis, the highest of any age group.
It’s important that our community know that many of our seniors right here in the Green Valley-Sahuarita area rely on both federal nutrition programs and food banks to get by each month.
Together, we can provide hope to seniors and families in need.
