Take Action Against Malnutrition
September is not only Hunger Action Month, but September 23-27 is Malnutrition Awareness week.

Did you know?
  • 1 out of 2 older adults are at risk for malnutrition or is already malnourished
  • 16% of independent older adults are at high risk for malnutrition
  • 9 million older adults cannot afford nutritious food

Malnutrition affects more individuals than just people with a low income or unable to feed themselves. It can also affect people who have the means to buy groceries, prepare meals and have a great support system!

Advocacy Alert -
We Need Your Help!
Contact your Members of Congress and Help Us Push for the Re-authorization the Older Americans Act!
The Older Americans Act (OAA) Expires on September 30 th , 2019. The OAA enables older adults to age in the home and in the community where they want to be thus avoiding more expensive medical or institutional care. The Act provides vita supports to Caregivers to bolster their ability to continue to care for their loved one. It helps to identify and prevent abuse and neglect of older Americans and encourages the investment into cost effective programs that allow people to stay healthy and independent while living in the community.

Please contact your members of congress (for contact information, click here and scroll to the bottom of the page) and ask them to vote for the Re-authorization of The Older Americans Act, NOW.
