ICYMI: Last week co-hosted our first webinar of 2023 with the North Carolina Coalition on Aging. It was incredibly important to us that we bring some attention to food insecurity and nutrition in aging adults because hunger knows no age limit. We also know that there are benefits and services available for aging adults but many people are not aware of these or how to apply for them.
The webinar featured Amanda Holliday, Associate Professor UNC-CH, Gillings School of Public Health, Department of Nutrition; Neal Curran, Director of Food Programs at Reinvestment Partners; and Linda Miller, Centralina Area Agency on Aging Director.
The webinar highlighted some really important facts and insights such as the fact that 51% of people age 65 and older lived in nine states and North Carolina is one of those nine states. Want to know more? You can watch the recorded webinar here.
