Food insecurity among older adults has severe effects on quality of life and health while reducing one’s chances of aging in place. Over 10% of older adults are food insecure, and food insecurity has disproportionate impacts on people who are Black or Hispanic, dualeligible, and/or live alone. With government relief falling short, thousands of older adults are stuck on waiting lists for programs like Meals on Wheels, and at risk of starvation.
