May Is Older Americans Month

Older Americans Month is an annual event dating back to 1963, when President John F. Kennedy designated May as Senior Citizens Month. It was later renamed Older Americans Month, honoring older Americans and celebrating their contributions to our communities and our nation.

This year's theme "Age Strong! Live Long!" recognizes the diversity and vitality of today's older Americans who span three generations.

Mapping The Meal Gap In The United States

Feeding America - a nationwide network of food banks (Second Harvest is a member) first published the Map the Meal Gap project in early 2011 to learn more about the face of hunger at the local level.

In August, 2011 child food insecurity data was added to the project. Select a year and your state in our interactive map and start learning more about the residents struggling with hunger in your community and the food banks that serve them.
