Senior Issues Workshop on Food Access

If you’re interested in issues that our Upstate seniors face, there’s still time for you to join us on April 25th for a great discussion on the topic of food access. According to SC's Council on Aging, 20% of South Carolinians over the age of 60 are food insecure, so the barriers that seniors face in accessing nutritious food need to be identified and removed. Our panelists will cover a range of topics relating to this issue.

The panel will be moderated by Catriona Carlisle, Executive Director of Meals on Wheels Greenville. She will be joined by five panelists who are also very knowledgeable on the subject:

Amy Bell, Manager, Emergency Food Pantry Manager for Harvest Hope Greenville
Bates McKinny, Congregate Dining Site Manager, Spartanburg Recreation
Laurie Ashley, Executive Director, Meals on Wheels Anderson
Kathy Hendricks-Dublin, CEO, Piedmont Agency on Aging
Yvonne Harper, Director, Fifty Upstate
