Food Resources for Seniors
Getting a warm and healthy meal is essential to one's health—but for 1 in 12 Minnesota seniors, it can be a struggle. That's why we've teamed up with UnitedHealthcare, WCCO-TV and Minnesota Vikings to help older Americans realize that there are programs that can help. This helps provide seniors with the nutritious foods they need or resources to find them.
