Too many of our nation’s older adults struggle against hunger. In 2019, 8.9 percent – 4.8 million – of people aged 65 and over lived in poverty in the United States. Millions more households with seniors face marginal food security.

One in 10 of the nation’s 43.8 million households with adults(60岁以上)参加了2012 - 2016年间平均补充营养援助计划(SNAP)。

SNAP is the first line of defense against senior hunger.

  • 为什么Snap facters for Seniors
    The Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP):

    • 每个符合条件的高级,每个国家的每个角落都可以使用。
    • provides seniors with significant food purchasing power every month of the year.
    • improves food insecurity and health, helping seniors to maintain their independence.
    • reaches by far and away more seniors than any of the federal nutrition programs available to seniors.

    In addition to SNAP, seniors could be eligible for additional federal programs depending on their income, health status, age, and whether the program is available in their area.

  • 关闭高级快速缺口
    估计只有48%的符合条件的老年人参加了Snap。这与2017财年的86%的非老年人相比。为什么?

    • 柱头
    • 关于该计划的错误信息
    • 缺乏关于如何申请的信息
    • Barriers related to mobility

    One of the key strategies to addressing hunger among older adults is to连接更多符合条件的老年人. To improve participation, FRAC is working to remove barriers facing older adults through federal legislation that will improve benefit levels, and by partnering with state officials, advocates, service providers and other stakeholders to strengthen state policies.

  • 与孩子一起生活的老年人
    Older adults may reside in a household with children under 18 years of age (e.g., their own children, grandchildren), which can increase the likelihood of experiencing food insecurity. Parents and caregivers often try to protect children from food insecurity by, for example, sacrificing their own food and nutrition needs so that the children can eat.

    国家数据显示:

    • 家庭粮食不安全的税率在患有任何儿童的家庭中较高1.4倍(与没有儿童的家庭相比)。
    • Rates of household food insecurity are at least two times higher among households with a grandchild present (compared to households without a grandchild present).
