Oklahoma continues to rank among the top ten states in the nation for food insecurity among seniors. There are roughly 700,000 seniors, age 60 + living in Oklahoma. More than 21 percent, or 1 in 11, are threatened by hunger. By the year 2030, nearly 25 percent of our total population will be over the age of 60 (1 in 4). Every day, older Oklahomans are faced with the dilemma of not having enough money to pay for rent, utilities, medical bills and prescriptions. At times, support from family and friends is just not enough, and they are unable to stretch their dollar far enough to purchase enough food to sustain their health.
