A new D.C. Federal Nutrition Programs Toolkit is designed to help community-based organizations, social service and healthcare providers, District agencies, and community members connect low-income households with federal nutrition programs. Beverley Wheeler, director of D.C. Hunger Solutions, told The DC Line, “with this toolkit, our community leaders can play a key role in ensuring children, young adults, adults, and older adults can connect with the right providers to help gain access to the nutrition they need for their health and well-being.”

FRAC’s map and accompanying tables show that just 42 percent of eligible seniors (60+) are using SNAP on average each month — compared to 83 percent of all SNAP-eligible people that participate in SNAP.
