 Upstate Senior Issues Workshop:

Food Access 

Sponsored by:

Supporting Sponsor: 

As part of the Ten at the Top Senior Issues Committee's stated goal of being intentional about addressing senior needs, this workshop will look at the issue of food access for seniors. According to SC's Council on Aging, 20% of South Carolinians over the age of 60 are food insecure, so the barriers that seniors face in accessing nutritious food need to be identified and removed. Our panelists will cover a range of topics relating to this issue.


Amy Bell, Manager, Emergency Food Pantry Manager for Harvest Hope Greenville

Laurie Ashley, Executive Director, Meals on Wheels Anderson

Kathy Hendricks-Dublin, CEO, Piedmont Agency on Aging

Yvonne Harper, Director, Fifty Upstate

Moderator: Catriona Carlisle, Executive Director, Meals on Wheels Greenville


This is the second of four workshops to be hosted over the course of 2019. The purpose is to educate and raise awareness to a variety of community stakeholders. This will create an opportunity to begin a much larger discussion of senior issues at a regional level.
