EAT WELL – LIVE WELL: Seniors Food & Health Expo set for Friday
The Senior Hunger Action Team of the Dallas Coalition for Hunger Solutions will present an event Friday to educate seniors and their families on how to eliminate hunger and live healthier.
The free event will be held from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Friday at the Harry Stone Recreation Center, 2403 Millmar Road.
The Coalition has collaborated with the City of Dallas Senior Services Program and Senior Affairs Commission, AARP-Texas, The Senior Source, and Baylor University to host the event, which will feature healthy living presentations, food demos and many resources and services available to seniors.
Eligible seniors can also apply for Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. Research has found that many eligible seniors are not receiving SNAP, especially Dallas zip codes 75216, 75217, 75228, 75208 and 75211. SNAP benefit signup help will also be available on Friday.
