Nationwide, more than 8 million adults aged 50 to 64 rely on charitable food assistance to help make ends meet. Not wanting to be a burden, they often suffer in silence. They are more likely to experience chronic illnesses like Diabetes, depression, reduced muscle mass and bone density, and poor vision. They are our family, our friends, and our neighbors - and AARP Virginia is committed to ending their hunger.
Nearly nine million Americans 50+ are at risk for hunger every day – a 79 percent increase in just 10 years. The Drive to End Hunger is AARP Foundation’s multipronged approach on this problem. Established in 2011, the program is focused on combating hunger among people 50 and older through raising awareness, building philanthropic support and developing long-term, sustainable solutions.
