Tacoma Lutheran Retirement Community Food Drive

Not only is senior hunger such a large issue now, the threat of it persisting as a problem into the future is high because of the high rate of seniors expected to exist. As a result of the 2007 global crisis, seniors lost millions of dollars on the stock exchange, their income – including retirement accounts, tax premiums, and pension controls – plunged. This increased the rate at which seniors spent money on lesser quality food in favor of other things like insurance. Not only are we hoping to help seniors in our area with our food drive but also we want to be able to help all our community. Please help us by giving to help feed our community!

Almost one of every six seniors in America faces the challenge of starvation and is not adequately nurtured. This refers to those who are not aware where their next meal comes from and those who do not have access to the healthiest available food sources. The problem is bad enough that the AARP estimates that seniors face health bills of more than $130 billion per year due to medical problems resulting from senior hunger.
