You're invited to the second Ohio Senior Hunger Summit on Friday, October 28th from 10:30-3:00 pm at the Mid-Ohio Foodbank in Grove City, Ohio. Click here to register and RSVP.
Hunger is all too real for many of the older adults in Ohio. Fixed low-incomes, limited mobility and access to adequate food are causing more and more older adults in Ohio to make choices no one should have to make: between buying food and paying for medicine, medical care, transportation, keeping the lights on or a roof over their head. Ohio is an aging state and the effects of the recent recession on the employment, incomes and retirement prospects of our elders is unknown. We do know the effects of hunger and malnutrition and the devastating consequences they have for older adults, including increases in health care conditions, limitation in daily activities and disability, which limit their ability to live independently in their homes.
In an effort to understand and address this critical issue, advocates across the state are coming together for the second Ohio Senior Hunger Summit on Friday, October 28th from 10:30 am to 3:00 pm at the Mid-Ohio Foodbank (3960 Brookham Drive, Grove City, Ohio 43123).
