New research
8 million Baby Boomers face hunger in USA, report finds

“Hunger is an invisible problem that millions of older Americans battle silently every day. We have found that the “youngest old” – people 50-59 – tend to suffer the most, often having to skimp on meals or skip them altogether because they can’t afford them,” said AARP Foundation President Lisa Marsh Ryerson. “Feeding America’s boomer-focused research reinforces our earlier research on this hidden and very serious problem, and intensifies our commitment to address it.”
