I’m almost 66. We have chickens. :)
What people don’t really get is that food is ridiculously cheap. And the needs of the elderly are minimalist, to say the least. I love steel cut or course rolled oats. It’s very healthy and costs a few cents per serving. Salt and sugar and water. No milk.
This never happened under Bulack Hussein???
I seem to understand that this is a result of many poor choices that were made and left for the taxpayers to clean up. From cradle to grave, I guess.
the US.... where the poor are obese.
HA...my husband says we qualify for Senior food assistance, or whatever, cause we are hungry nearly every night when we retire....but, then we quit eating about 5 or 6pm....by morning...not so hungry. Helps keep the weight off for us.
Leftist social engineering. Women are the bedrock of the family, and the family of society. Many followed the siren song of feminism, materialism and corporate America
Too bad. Remember to keep voting democrat.
The problem of senior hunger began at noon, Jan 20, 2017. What took them so long to run the story?
Yep, a Republican must be in the White House.
I read somewhere recently the average American adult could not pay cash in the event of an emergency costing $1000.
I find that amazing!
Can’t we just enslave our Children in perpetual debt to pay for our wants??
Hippies for handouts.
I think this article is Fake News.
"Family as a food safety net isnt as strong as it once was because the invention and popularization of birth control pills during the Boomers era has meant fewer children..."
Plus: do you want your caregivers in your old age to be Somalis? Yes -- but only if you're Somali.
The gub'mint pols have used our SS to donate to every "illegal, fake, pretend American" to keep them satisfied, not to mention "donating to their countries from which they are busily escaping, with the help of the UN and Soros, so they could flood across our Southern Border!
Have you ever looked at some Boomers lately, they don't appear to be "starving" to me, having tried sitting beside one on an airplane, movie or concert hall?
They require jumbo seat belts on planes, take at least 1/3 of MY SEAT but no matter how much I complain, the air Nazis (aka flight attendants) tell me to shut up or they'll kick me off the flight entirely and "ban me from flying on their air planes!"
Nope, many these fatso boomers are so fat they demand riding grocery carts, jumbo wheelchairs that dwarf most people within 150+ of their "normal weight charts!" Check out their kids and now grandchildren, more of the same, only fatter!
Starving, not so much as I'm seeing at the parking lots of grocery stores, Walmart, Sam's Club, Costco, HomeDepot and Lowe's and the Casinos and food banks!
To be kind, I'm sure that there are people out there saving store coupons, shopping on sale or discounted items so they can pay their utility bills but many have done that since they watched their parents did the same and it's a tradition.
One of the "crisis" in my neck of the woods is the amount of foods actually thrown away (due to heal dept. rules!)
I’m stocking up on prepper dehydrated entries for emergency reasons. About $2 a serving.
It must be election season again. Do old people still eat Alpo?
