Nearly 4 million seniors - grandparents, veterans, retirees - who live in food-insecure households often worry about whether to pay for food or medicine. Cynthia and Larry face this decision every day. They've never been rich, and after debilitating illness left Larry, a veteran, unable to work, they barely receive enough through their disability payments to get by. This vulnerable group deserves better. And we can do better, especially in a nation that wastes billions of pounds of food each year.
As individuals, charities, businesses and government, we can join together and get food to those in need. Take a moment to honor a special senior in your life by pledging to speak up for those in need of food assistance.
Spread the word about the impact of hunger in your community and across the country, and urge your Member of Congress to take action on behalf of Americans who need it most, you can be a part of movement to end hunger in America. Together, We Can Solve Hunger... and it starts with you.
Take the pledge today and join our community to ensure seniors don't go hungry.
