Nearly 5.3 million senior citizens currently face hunger in our country. 1 in 6 seniors living in Northeast Florida face the realities of hunger. After a lifetime of hard work, many older adults find themselves facing an impossible choice — to pay for groceries or medical care. With the effects of COVID-19 and as the baby-boom generation ages, the number of seniors facing hunger is only expected to increase. Feeding Northeast Florida is working hard to solve this. We are committed to helping our senior population through food assistance programs that consider health risks, transportation needs, physical limitations and dietary restrictions of older Americans. Feeding Northeast Florida helps local children and families, seniors and active and retired military members who struggle to put food on the table. Working with local grocery stores, manufacturers, and farms we rescue high-quality food that would normally be wasted and transform it into meals for those in need.
