This is usually the time of year when generations of families come together to celebrate the holidays. This year is different. This year, many older New Yorkers are alone and too many have to worry about their next meal.

Since March, JASA has seen the number of urgent requests for help from seniors and their families triple. 95% of these requests are about needing food.

That's why we are launching JASAEats to raise awareness about food insecurity and critical funds to provide meals for seniors at-risk of hunger. Check out @JASASeniors for campaign updates and see below for our partners.
