All Americans should have access to healthy food—regardless of age.
NCOA and Feeding America hosted the first-ever Closing the Senior SNAP Gap Summit in Washington, DC on Sept. 6, 2017. This event brought together thought leaders and experts from across the country to help make that vision a reality.
The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, formerly known as Food Stamps) is a federal program that provides more than $100/month on average to seniors to pay for groceries – nutritious food that helps them stay healthy and independent in their own homes.
But today, only 2 in 5 seniors eligible for SNAP are enrolled in the program. We want to close that gap. Our goal is to enroll 1 million eligible seniors in SNAP by 2025.
