TACKLING HUNGER PROACTIVELY
Nearly 9 million Americans 50+ are at risk for hunger every day – a staggering 79 percent increase in just 10 years. Drive to End Hunger is AARP Foundation’s multipronged approach on this problem. We’re working to combat hunger among people 50 and older through raising awareness, building philanthropic support and developing long-term, sustainable solutions.
