May 01, 2012
  • Description

The Social IMPACT Research Center (IMPACT), at the request of the Greater Chicago Food Depository, conducted a geographic analysis of primarily federally-funded nutrition programs that target older adults. The goal of the project is to better understand what Chicago Community Areas and Suburban Cook County townships are most underserved by federally-funded nutrition programming in relation to the number of older adults likely to have need for food assistance.
