Solutions to Senior Hunger

Jewish Family Service is honored to be one of 13 states around the country chosen to participate in the Solutions to Senior Hunger program. This initiative - launched in Utah in 2016 by JFS - is administered by MAZON: A Jewish Response to Hunger, and funded by the Walmart Foundation.

Rosemary Quatrale is JFS’s new Senior Adult Nutrition Outreach Coordinator, who will manage the Solutions to Senior Hunger program in Utah, identifying low income seniors and assisting them in enrolling in the Food Stamps program. Rosemary will conduct Food Stamps outreach and education to senior populations, administer Food Stamp application assistance for eligible participants, and act as a liaison between the participant and their local government agency.

This FREE service to help people 50+ enroll in the Food Stamps program is available to anyone regardless of background or denomination in Salt Lake, Wasatch, and Summit Counties. The Food Stamps/Horizon Assistance debit card helps Utahns buy healthy food at grocery stores and farmer’s markets. Older adults are the least likely population to be enrolled in this federal assistance program, with only 40% of eligible individuals participating.

Do you know a person age 50 or older who might benefit from food assistance? If so, we'd like to help. Please This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. or call 801.746.4334 today for more information.
