In order to help with the serious issue of hunger in our community, AARP Foundation has announced that they are joining the Stamp Out Hunger drive today. In an effort to spread the word about the drive AARP alerted all of their members of the drive occurring this morning. They are also holding a sweepstakes on their website to encourage their members to participate.
According to Ann Black with AARP Iowa those 50 and older are apart of the fastest growing demographic that is food insecure. She notes that while young families need help, the elderly are also suffering from this economy.
