Over 14 million low-income older Americans are food insecure – gov’t report

Some 17 million elderly Americans are in need of government-funded meal services, but 90 percent of them don’t receive it, according to a new report by the Government Accountability Office. About 83 percent of those adults in need are food insecure.

“An estimated 90 percent of low-income older adults do not receive meals services like those funded by Title III programs, according to our analysis of 2013 CPS data,” the GAO wrote in a report released Monday.
