STOP SENIOR HUNGER Food Drive 
Events to Focus on Nutrition for our Senior Neighbors in Need

 

Albuquerque, NM (September 1-30, 2015) – Hunger is a serious threat facing over five million seniors in the United States. In fact, we all have a grandparent, parent or friend who may be suffering in silence. Older adults face many obstacles to getting healthy  food, and those challenges can lead to malnutrition. According to Feeding America, 1 in 7 seniors risk going hungry due to the inability to obtain sufficient food for their  household, or having to choose between food and medical care. During the month of  September, Comfort Keepers, the City of Albuquerque Dept. of Senior Affairs, and  Silver Horizons are working together to raise awareness for this growing epidemic that impacts millions of older Americans trying to remain healthy and independent. You can help by donating non-perishable foods at the city-wide Stop Senior Hunger locations at area Senior/Multigenerational Centers, or Comfort Keepers offices.

To learn more about senior nutrition and how you can participate in the Stop Senior Hunger events city-wide, call 232-7070, 764-6400 or 800-1400.
