Abstract:

The blog Nutrition Programs Fuel the Health and Well-being of Older Americans, for the American Society on Aging, describes the importance of food access and how the COVID-19 pandemic increased the burden of food insecurity among older adults, as well as further-exacerbated inequities that existed before COVID-19. By taking three actions to address hunger among older adults, individuals can help address the issue of food insecurity.
