Idaho Hunger Task Force: Making a place at the table for all Idahoans

About Idaho Hunger Relief Task Force

The Idaho Hunger Relief Task Force envisions that in a state as abundant as Idaho hunger will not exist and works to put public and private resources into action statewide in order to eliminate hunger and provide food security for all Idahoans.





Grandparents Raising Grandchildren in the US


Seniors residing with a grandchild are two-and-a-half times more likely to face the threat of hunger than seniors with no grandchild in the home, according to research commissioned by the National Foundation to End Senior Hunger (NFESH).

The April 2014 issue of Seniority features an article by Esme Fuller-Thomson, Ph.D. of the University of Toronto, on the hardships some grandparents face while raising their grandchildren. The article includes a forward by Lewis Bernstein, Ph.D., the Executive Vice President of Education, Research and Outreach at Sesame Street Workshop.

Read the April 2014 issue of Seniority.

The Oxford Dictionary defines Seniority as “the fact or state of being older.” This serial, digital magazine is about those who are older. It will be a periodic examination of various issues related to aging. It will address subject matter that we have found to be of vital importance in enhancing our understanding of the paradigm that is senior hunger in America. There are many predictors of senior hunger and each must be examined and discussed in order to effectuate the change that needs to occur in order to ameliorate hunger among seniors once and for all.

The Oxford Dictionary also defines Seniority as “a privileged position earned by reason of longer service.” We at NFESH have been privileged to work long on behalf of older Americans, and through our research and communications mechanisms such as this magazine we hope to continue to do so for many years.

We would like to hear from you. Tell us about this article. Tell us what kinds of articles you would like to see us include and issues you would like us to highlight in the future. Be a part of the conversation. By working together we can end senior hunger.
