SENIOR HUNGER

Seniors are the fastest growing segment of the population in the United States and, as a result, the issue of senior hunger is also one
of our fastest growing concerns. It’s an issue all of us can relate to as we all have parents, grandparents, or great-grandparents
who are aging. We simply must respond to this growing need to care for those who have spent their lifetimes building this country
and caring for us. Plain and simple – it’s the right thing to do.
