This annual report reveals results of a research study about food insecurity among older adults in the United States. Released by the National Foundation to End Senior Hunger (NFESH) and Feeding America, the study results offer data from the most recent year for which it is available, 2016, and reveals that more older adults faced hunger at this time than before the Great Recession.
