ONEgeneration Receives a Senior SNAP Enrollment Initiative Grant Made Possible by the Kind and Generous Support of the National Council of Aging
Los Angeles – Jan. 4, 2019 – ONEgeneration, a leader in intergenerational care and community services, announces a SNAP grant from the National Council on Aging. Each year, thousands of seniors who are often frail, vulnerable, and living in poverty, are able to find support and fulfillment through ONEgeneration. The organization is devoted to keeping older adults safe and protected, providing avenues to age independently, helping individuals avoid premature tipping points of decline, and improving overall health and wellbeing. Accomplishing these goals requires a significant community-wide effort and the generous support of partners, donors, volunteers, and foundations like the National Council on Aging.
Proper nutrition is a key factor influencing the ability of older adults to age in place. The funding from this grant will be used to assist older adults in applying for and enrolling in the USDA’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP). SNAP helps seniors 60+ living on a fixed income purchase healthy food at the grocery store. ONEgeneration will conduct outreach, identify eligible individuals, and assist with the application process.
ONEgeneration is very appreciative of the support the National Council on Aging provides and looks forward to working together to assist seniors with their nutritional needs.
