Member Duties : The goal of the Senior Hunger VISTA is to identify barriers and risk factors that increase the likelihood of a senior becoming food insecure. Food Insecure seniors are more likely to have chronic health conditions such as depression, asthma and high blood pressure. Nationally, the food insecurity rate among seniors is 7.7%, with Nevada fairing slightly better at 6% of our seniors identified as food insecure. Working with FBNN and community partners, the Senior Hunger VISTA will work to improve the nutritional health of low-income senior citizens in Washoe County through education and outreach, focused on healthy foods and nutrition education.
