Did you know that 1 in 7 seniors lives in poverty in our country? And that nearly 1 in 5 adults is affected by social isolation — which is as bad for you as smoking14? AARP Foundation and its supporters are working to change that by creating solutions, resources and innovative programs to help vulnerable seniors in need.

Join us as we pack 1 million meals for hungry seniors during our 2019 Celebration of Service!
On Wednesday, September 11, AARP Foundation is returning to Washington, D.C., for our Celebration of Service Meal Pack Challenge on the National Mall. We are rallying volunteers to pack 1 million meals for struggling seniors in the region.
As a volunteer, we are asking you to give us about two hours, during which time you along with your fellow volunteers can help pack 166 meals! The meals will go to Capital Area Food Bank for distribution to hungry seniors across the region.
The Meal Pack Challenge is an event for all ages, and a great opportunity for family, friends and colleagues to serve their community!
One day. 1 million meals.
