Complex Food Provisioning Strategies and Food Insecurity among Low-Income Older Americans | 2021 Indiana University Rural Conference
Food insecurity is all too common among older adults age 65+ in the U.S. and is highest in rural places. One in five food insecure households includes an older adult. In this session, we will examine recent findings from surveys, focus groups, and diet modeling in rural Indiana communities and discuss the impacts of the pandemic on food provisioning routines of older Americans in Orange, Greene, Lawrence, and Crawford counties.
