Senior hunger and food insecurity are big problems nationwide and in our community. In Ohio, five percent of senior citizens are at risk of going hungry. More than 250,000 elderly Ohioans receive emergency food assistance. The risk of hunger is expected to grow 50 percent by 2015, while funding for food banks, senior programs and meal delivery is being slashed.
The effort is comprised of a comprehensive public information campaign through TV, radio, print and the web, three live Town Hall television programs on WGTE TV; and community events.
