Introduction
As the demographics of our nation change, it is becoming increasingly important that all social service providers, especially those operating nutrition programs, be willing and able to bridge the cultural divide and offer assistance to seniors of all backgrounds.

We know that a significant number of individuals from diverse population groups have a nutrition status that falls in the vulnerable-to-poor range. These individuals are at high risk of experiencing chronic health problems and social isolation. Seniors with limited English language skills have difficulty accessing services and advocating for themselves. We also know that nutrition programs have a positive impact on senior health and that the programs serve as important gateways to other aging services.

That is why we are excited to present this directory of programs that have launched innovative and creative strategies to increase participation by seniors of diverse populations. We hope that inside you find great ideas to further your services to your communities.
