Five million seniors will experience hunger this year, but only 1 out of every 3 eligible seniors receives SNAP (formerly known as the Food Stamp Program).

In this webinar, we will discuss:

  • The basics of the SNAP benefit.
  • Why seniors don’t apply for SNAP and what aging network advocates can do about it.
  • Opportunities to expand your resources to help older adults obtain this valuable benefit.

Presenters:

Nora Dowd Eisenhower, Vice President, Center for Benefits Access
Lura Barber, Senior Policy Analyst, Center for Benefits Access

This Webinar will be offered twice:

Tuesday, March 20th at 3:00 PM eastern daylight time

Thursday, March 22nd at 10 AM eastern daylight time.
