Ending Hunger is Our Mission

Senior Outreach Program

Senior Outreach Program

Hunger Task Force’s Senior Outreach Program helps connect low-income senior to programs like FoodShare that provide access to adequate nutrition. The Senior Benefit Specialist travels to senior centers and apartment buildings and can help with the application process including interviews and submitting verification in order to ease the burden of the application process for home-bound seniors.

In addition to educating seniors about FoodShare, the Senior Benefit Specialist connects seniors to local resources and programs that reduce health care costs for eligible seniors. Seniors eligible for a Medicare Savings Program do not pay a Medicare premium out of their monthly social security check. SeniorCare is Wisconsin’s state prescription assistance program. Seniors should never have to choose between paying a doctor’s bill and paying for food.
