Senior Services Guide

Senior Services

Arkansas ranks #1 in the country with seniors, more than one in four, facing hunger. With 288,394 seniors 60 and older living in the Arkansas Foodbank’s 33-county service area, there are an estimated 73,367 food insecure seniors that the Arkansas Foodbank seeks to better serve. Through developing sustainable strategies and solutions to senior hunger alongside our member agencies we create communities where no senior has to go hungry. While many seniors are on a low, fixed income and have to choose between paying bills or buying much needed medication, their nutritional needs are not met.

We provide technical assistance to our agencies, for example promotion of senior-friendly food, tips on serving seniors and SNAP information and application assistance. To learn more about our Senior Services contact Shamim Okolloh or 501-569-4342
