Join the “New York City Seniors and the Rising Food Insecurity Crisis,” frank and sobering look at senior hunger – why it exists, who is most affected, and what is being done to solve it.
The facts are alarming.
Out of the 1.5 million seniors who call New York City home, over 240,000 of them live below the poverty line.
Of those, 167,000 don’t have enough to eat on a regular basis.
And many of these New Yorkers live in Harlem.
That’s why, an esteemed panel of officials from government agencies, community kitchens, faith-based organizations, food pantries and food rescue organizations will be meeting to address the unique nutritional needs and challenges that face New York seniors – as well as the available programs and nutrition services to help combat their food insecurity. Representatives from the Aging in New York Fund and various community organizations will be available to answer any questions you may have, either before, during, or after the event.
