Athens CAFE – Community Advocacy to Access Food Stamps for the Elderly

Did you know that many eligible low-income older adults are not receiving food stamps?  Did you know that receiving food stamps can help older adults eat better, prevent and manage chronic diseases, and promote healthy aging?

Now, you can do your part to help!   Athens CAFÉ is looking for volunteer food stamp advocates.  Training dates will take place at UGA’s Center for Teaching and Learning on:

  • Friday, May 4 from 1-4 pm
  • Wednesday, May 9 from 1-4 pm
  • Wednesday, May 16 from 1-4 pm

After attending the training sessions, you will be able to help older adults in your community apply for and receive food stamp benefits.

To sign up to participate in this program, please call or email Lauren Badger (706-583-0116, lbadger@uga.edu).
