UPDATE: DAY 1 – 2016 SUMMIT

The first day of the 2016 Show Me Summit On Aging and health kicked off in Branson, Missouri with a full day of training, overview sessions dealing with veterans affairs, nutrition and tax policy and a special keynote address from Enid Borden, CEO of the National Foundation to End Senior Hunger.

Speaker: Enid Borden, President/CEO, National Foundation to End Senior Hunger Praised Missouri’s seniors for making senior nutrition a priority.14291923_1454125551267989_3712515958753788522_n

“I love the fact that the Summit organizers capitalize on Missouri’s well-known moniker as the ’Show Me State’ to focus attention on the challenges and opportunities facing both seniors and those professionals tasked with providing support to them,” Borden said. “When it comes to finding solutions to senior hunger, we need to concentrate on facts, examine what the data can actuallyshow us. At the National Foundation to End Senior Hunger (NFESH) we are dedicated to that, because we know data can and does lead us toward finding effective ways forward as we tackle the challenge of reducing hunger. We are here to show Missourians some of what we’ve learned.”

Since 2008, NFESH has commissioned and released national research on the causes, consequences and extent of senior hunger in the United States. The following year, NFESH research began examining the problem on a state-by-state basis as well. Borden, who is widely acknowledged as the leading expert on and crusader against senior hunger in the nation, will present the latest statistics for Missouri. In addition, she will introduce Summit participants to NFESH’s What A Waste initiative, which is being implemented in Senior Nutrition Programs (SNPs) across the country.

What A Waste furnishes SNPs knowledge and tools to collect-site specific data on the amount of food waste and wasted food they generate in the course of providing meals to seniors. Using that data recorded in NFESH’s proprietary software program, NFESH experts analyze the data to determine the cost of that waste in terms of meals, dollars, and nutrients lost. Based on this information, NFESH recommends program specific policy and operational changes to reduce these losses.

Day 2

Parks and Jones, Attorneys at Law, addresses the Conference this morning at our first annual Business Expo.

Amy Gotwals, National Association of Area Agencies on Aging, talks Policy Forecast to get the day started at the 13th Annual Show Me Summit on Aging and Health.
