On September 11, a team of HumRRO staff from our Alexandria, Monterey, and Minneapolis offices joined thousands of volunteers on the National Mall in Washington DC to pack meals for low income senior citizens. The event, currently in its fourth year, is part of AARP’s Summer of Service to Seniors, designed to provide tangible support to the over 10 million adults across the U.S. who live each day with the crippling impact of food insecurity and senior poverty. Through this and other similar efforts, the AARP Foundation has packed and distributed over 41 million meals in recent years.
