March is the 50th Anniversary of the Senior Nutrition Program
Beginning in 1972, the National Senior Nutrition Program has promoted nutrition-based programs and services for aging adults across the U.S. Nutrition for seniors has been instrumental in furthering quality of life and longevity and has received financial support from the Older Americans Act, which was signed into law on July 14, 1965. As it stands, local senior nutrition programs allow seniors to connect with nutritious meals and other essential services that propagate social connection, health, and overall well-being.
As noted in the title, March 2022 marks 50 years for the Senior Nutrition Program. The theme this year is “Celebrate. Innovate. Educate.” There are many activities and materials available to promote the Senior Nutrition Program, and these can be found on the webpage ACL.gov/SNP50. Here you can download artwork (logos, banners, etc.) and other items to help build awareness. Further, use the hashtags #SNP50 #SeniorNutritionProgram #MentalHealth in your social media postings to spread the word.
