"No Senior Hungry" Omnibus Amendment Act of 2021

Time: 4:00 PM to 5:00 PM ET - Virtual

Join us for a virtual presentation by Ms. Winnie Huston, Food Policy Strategist, of DC Greens as she discusses food insecurity among DC Seniors.

Ms. Huston will talk about issues of food insecurity facing our fellow seniors and her experience in helping older DC residents. She will also share the proposed “No Senior Hungry” law. In October, the proposed bill was presented to the Council of the District of Columbia and signed by 7 members of Congress.

Ms. Huston will provide an update of the status of this proposed bill and share details to help our seniors understand how the bill is intended to address the problem of inadequate food supply in the homes of seniors as well as provide tips on how local residents can participate.

Coronovirus (Covid-19) Update

Covid-19 and Delta Variant cases are still on the rise. 

While many Seniors have been vaccinated against the COVID-19 virus, there are several variants that have been identified in the DC area.  Recently, there has been an increase in Covid-19 positive cases amongst residents who have not been vaccinated throughout the DC metro area. We urge our Seniors to continue to wear a mask and take other necessary precautions to stay healthy. 

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are known to cause illness ranging from the common cold to more severe diseases such as Severe Acute Respiratory syndrome (SARS) and Middle East Respiratory Syndrome (MERS).
