April was Senior Hunger Awareness Month and May is Older Americans Month. In commemoration, the Huffington Post ran an excellent article, written by the President of the AARP Foundation, shedding light on the more than 10 million older adults who are hungry in America. The emphasis on hunger as a long-term threat to public health is particularly noteworthy: “Seniors who are food insecure are 50 percent more likely to have diabetes, 60 percent more likely to have congestive heart failure or a heart attack….hunger costs the U.S. healthcare system $130.5 billion annually”. These statistics, although tough to swallow, are a reality we face every day here at God’s Love We Deliver. Although we serve all ages, over 60% of the clients we serve are over 60. We thank the Huffington post and AARP Foundation for a well-written article on a very important topic.
