Organizations Fighting Hunger
AARP Iowa: Drive to End Hunger
As part of the AARP and AARP Foundation Drive to End Hunger, AARP Iowa is recruiting volunteers to help raise awareness of hunger in Iowa, especially among older adults, and assist older Iowans in the application process for the Iowa Food Assistance Program or Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) formerly known as food stamps. The Drive to End Hunger campaign is a multi-pronged effort by AARP and AARP Foundation to not only raise awareness of the issue of food insecurity but end hunger among older adults.
How to Help:
Volunteers are needed across the state to assist in various ways. For those interested in assisting with applications for Iowa Food Assistance, one day of training on the computer application is required. For those interested in helping raise awareness of hunger and senior nutrition, volunteers are needed for a speakers bureau to make presentations to organizations and groups in their home areas. Speakers bureau volunteers receive skills training and scheduling assistance.
