(University of Illinois College of Agricultural, Consumer and Environmental Sciences) A recent report comparing data from 2007 to 2015 finds 5.4 million people age 60 or older in the US, or 8.1 percent, are food insecure. Although this percentage went down from 2014 to 2015, it’s still unacceptable, according to University of Illinois economist Craig Gundersen.
