Food insecurity is a prevalent issue in the United States especially in communities that are underserved. Underserved communities are disproportionately affected by poverty and unemployment, which contributes heavily to food insecurity. Many older adults are also struggling with hunger and food insecurity but do not take advantage of available resources for many reasons such as lack of transportation, illness, mobility, etc. Food Insecurity is deeply rooted in poverty and requires a holistic approach to address the issues. It is easy to get overwhelmed by food insecurity, but there are ways to alleviate it. To help combat this problem, ABHM has partnered with food banks and communities organizations to provide healthy groceries to families that are struggling.
