No senior should be hungry. However, according to a study performed in 2010 by the Meals on Wheels Research Foundation (MOWRF) detailing senior hunger, 8.3 million seniors, or 1 in 7, faced the threat of hunger in 2010. The problem of senior hunger has gotten worse since then.
People can start helping locally by donating at Gilmer Computer Tech or volunteering at their local Meals on Wheels program. Meals on Wheels Ministry serves 3,000 meals across East Texas to the elderly and disabled in need. Last year, Meals on Wheels served more than 755,000 meals.
