fight against senior hunger

Did you know hunger adds 14 years to a senior citizen's physical age? This means a 60-year-old experiencing hunger has the same limitations in activities of daily living as a 74-year-old. But, there's help for hungry seniors in Alabama.

The Area Agency on Aging of the South Alabama Regional Planning Commission provides assistance to older adults, disabled individuals, their families and caregivers.  The agency wants to hear from Mobile, Baldwin and Escambia County residents about how we might better serve you.
