What happens when you can no longer drive or get out of the home? What happens when doing the simple things that help us remain independent, like getting to the store for weekly groceries, becomes a major challenge? According to AARP research, 90% of people ages 45+ say they want to remain in their own home as long as possible. But being able to live independently is a challenge for many older adults and people with disabilities. That is where an organization like Store to Door comes in!  AARP Oregon has been working with Store to Door’s Executive Director Kiersten Ware and her team this year on our food security outreach efforts and we have become great fans of their work. We asked Kiersten about her non-profit in a recent interview.
