WGTE Town Hall: Seeking Solutions to Senior Hunger -
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 2025, while funding for food banks, senior programs and meal delivery is being slashed.
Originally broadcast on April 24, 2014, the program kicks off the "Seeking Solutions to Senior Hunger" initiative which will continue throughout the year, and will include two more interactive Town Hall programs on WGTE TV, community events, educational videos and a website with resources for seniors and their families at www.seniorhungersolutions.org.
