Food Assistance: Keeping You Healthy

Older adults have unique dietary needs. Good nutrition and exercise are a winning combination, but often difficult for older adults to afford.

The Iowa Department of Human Services offers a food assistance program to help with these difficulties. Formerly known as Food Stamps, Food Assistance helps older adults buy healthy and nutritious food — such as fresh produce and lean meats — which are often more expensive. This program is a great way to supplement fixed incomes.
