AARP Joins with Hunger Free Vermont to Promote 3 Squares

AARP Vermont has teamed up with Hunger Free Vermont to help with outreach and promotion of an innovative new program to facilitate seniors’ participation in the federal nutrition program – 3 SquaresVT. Called Eat Well, Age Well, the program provided trained senior volunteers (peers) to go to homes and communities and to educate potential participants and directly assist in the application process. The program aims to break down the barriers to seniors who are reluctant to take part for a variety of reasons.

Eat Well Age Well is a program that connects seniors with peer volunteers to help them apply to receive extra food money each month from the 3 Squares VT federal nutrition assistance program.

The goal of the innovative new Eat Well, Age Well program is to grow a team of “Nutrition Corps” volunteers, age 55+, who will be given the tools and training to reach out to their peers and talk about the importance of nutrition and how 3SquaresVT can help seniors afford fresh, healthy foods. Volunteers share program information, assist seniors in filling out the application and support them throughout the process to ensure they are receiving the maximum benefits and understand how the program works.
