Join us this summer to pack meals for older adults in need.
AARP Foundation is bringing communities together for a day of service…and fun!
AARP Foundation is committed to taking senior poverty out of the shadows.
For a startling number of older adults, poverty is a fact of life that threatens to put the American Dream out of reach. More than 10 million adults 50 and older live below the poverty line. This summer, AARP Foundation is traveling across the country to pack 3 million meals for older adults in need.
Meal packaging events are festivals of giving and caring that draw families, neighbors, colleagues and communities together. The events are also fun – with music and entertainment – and anyone of any age or background can participate. Volunteers have an extraordinary opportunity to give of their time and heart to hungry and food-insecure older adults by packaging flavorful, nutritious meals. All meals have been specially designed for mature adults by a team of food and nutrition researchers. Meals packaged at the event will be delivered to and distributed by local food banks.
