The Meals On Wheels Association Of America recently released its annual senior hunger report and sadly, Florida is still in the "top ten" in senior hunger rates. In the past five years, the rate increased from 1 in 9 seniors to 1 in 7 seniors who are living with hunger. Please help spread the word - we can make a difference!
Together, we can provide food for the hungry, and cheer for the homebound.
