Older Adult Nutrition Month and SNAP Advocacy

March 25 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm

Register

Nationally,  approximately 5 million low-income adults aged 60+ rely on SNAP. On average, households with elderly individuals receive $125 per month to help put food on the table. 

Currently, only 2 out of 5 of seniors eligible for SNAP are enrolled in the program. Some seniors may not know about SNAP or how to enroll, or they may think that the application process is too difficult. It is important that outreach to underserved populations continues, and that barriers to applying for help are addressed.  

Join our Connections webinar as we spotlight NCOA’s Center for Benefits Access, the work of the Chicago Food Depository and an update on hunger policy and advocacy amidst the pandemic. The conversation will be followed by a Q&A session with the guest speakers.  Your participation will create essential connections to help people live well, age well, and thrive!
