Spring 2023 Virtual Food Drive

About 38 million older adults are living at or below the poverty line and nearly 9.5 million adults over the age of 50 are struggling to afford food. Spiking food prices and an economic recession are pushing more seniors to the brink of hunger.

Don’t wait! Your gift can make a tremendous difference in this urgent moment. Help us raise $250,000 by the end of March to support older adults facing hunger.

By supporting the Spring Virtual Food Drive, you can give new hope to seniors struggling to put food on the table.
