There are over 347,000 seniors in Pennsylvania who face hunger! According to the Food Research and Action Center (FRAC), Pennsylvania’s First Congressional District – which includes Chester, South Philadelphia, and parts of North Philadelphia – is ranked as the 2 nd hungriest district in the nation. As a result, AARP Pennsylvania has collaborated with the AARP Foundation to end hunger among older Americans through a variety of initiatives designed to provide both short-term support and long-term, sustainable solutions to the problem of older adult hunger across the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
AARP is joining GenPhilly for “What’s Cooking,” a great event to discuss senior hunger relief. The discussion includes public officials, academicians, civic leaders from food banks, philanthropies and direct service non-profits, religious leaders, and executives from businesses across the Delaware Valley.
