Spotlight on COVID-19 Resources
The National Senior Nutrition Program has been developing and gathering COVID-19 resources since the earliest days of the pandemic.
The new Nutrition and Aging Resource Center website includes an expanded section of COVID-19-related resources for nutrition programs, including considerations around the complexities of reopening, real experiences and advice from programs, and a range of tips and FAQ for program managers.
ACL's National Resource Center on Nutrition and Aging – also known as the Nutrition and Aging Resource Center – serves to build the capacity of senior nutrition programs funded by the Older Americans Act (OAA) to provide high quality, person-centered services, and to assist ACL and stakeholders with identifying opportunities to enhance program sustainability and resiliency. OAA-funded senior nutrition programs work to reduce food insecurity, hunger, and malnutrition; enhance socialization; and promote health and well-being of older adults.
