Nearly 1 in 6 seniors in America face the threat of hunger. The majority of them are women… women who probably spent years of their lives working to ensure that nutritious meals were put on their tables night after night, so others would eat. Now it is our moral obligation to do the same for them.
That is why NFESH formed the National Alliance of Women Against Senior Hunger (NAWASH). Then we invited a group of dynamic women – including film and television personalities, distinguished journalists, thought leaders, representatives of corporate America and government leaders – to join our cause.
As Charter Members of NAWASH, the women named below are playing a major role in our fight to end senior hunger by helping us start the conversation with new partners. By bringing this serious issue into their spheres of influence; by raising awareness on both local and national public platforms.
