Senior Hunger Summit

About the Program

Each year since 2016, the Georgia Department of Human Services Division of Aging Services has sponsored the Senior Hunger Summit. The summit address the five focus areas of the State Plan to Address Senior Hunger (Pub. Dec. 2017). The focus areas are Today’s Seniors, Health Impact of Senior Hunger, Food Access, Food Waste and Reclamation, and Meeting the Community Needs. The Summit brings together a diverse group of experts, policymakers and community stakeholders to heighten awareness of senior hunger in Georgia, unearth issues accompanying the problem, highlight best practices, and seed opportunities to combat senior hunger.

Georgia's Senior Hunger Series

It has been an unprecedented year in efforts to address senior hunger amid the COVID-19 pandemic. After careful deliberation, we have put together a Senior Hunger Series that serves to fill a critical need to meet this moment.  Join us on October 20-22, 2020 for 2.5 -3 hours of programming each day that will focus on the extraordinary work being done during this pandemic and what we need to prepare for in the future.  This future planning also includes the opening talks for Georgia’s next state plan to address senior hunger. Our agenda will be posted the last week of September 2020.
