The Food Security for Seniors and Persons with Disabilities Project provides city-level data on food insecurity among seniors and persons with disabilities living in Seattle’s subsidized housing.  The report also identifies the barriers that prevent these populations from utilizing the emergency food system and provides recommendations on ways to increase access to the system for isolated and vulnerable adults.
