Fight Senior Hunger in October

September 27, 2013 By: Sara Blair Category: WordPress Import

Eighty-thousand Minnesota seniors struggle with hunger every day. At Second Harvest Heartland, we work to reduce senior citizens’ risk of food insecurity and hunger to benefit their health, nutrition and general well-being. That’s why we’ve teamed up with UnitedHealthcare and WCCO-TV again this year to help our older neighbors realize that there are programs available that can help them get the food they need.

Throughout the month of October, you’ll see PSAs and other promotions on WCCO-TV that will encourage seniors and their caregivers to connect with resources like food shelf locations and information, congregant dining and transportation options and more.

Hunger is a fact of life for many older Minnesotans, and thousands do not know where they’ll find their next meal. We’re fortunate to have great partners in UnitedHealthcare and WCCO-TV to help raise awareness about the issue of senior hunger, and connect those in need with the programs and resources that can help.
