The Twin Falls Senior Center has a challenge to overcome. The need in the Magic Valley has increased while government support has not kept pace.

Jeanette Roe is the Executive Director for the Twin Falls Senior Center and she explained that there is a constant need for volunteers including drivers for the Meals on Wheels program. She provided the following statistics.

  • Recent data indicates 8.3 million American seniors face the threat of hunger
  • Over 12,000 baby boomers turn 60 years old every single day
  • By 2025, an estimated 9.5 million seniors in the U.S. will experience some form of food insecurity.
