In May 2022, FNS Mid-Atlantic Regional Administrator Dr. Patty Bennett joined Maryland Department of Aging Deputy Secretary Bernice Hutchinson and other nutrition partners at Sandtown Winchester Senior Center in West Baltimore to promote “My Groceries to Go,” the Commodity Supplemental Food Program in Maryland. This program, a critical piece of the federal nutrition safety net, helps low-income seniors 60 and older struggling to eat well by supplementing their diets with nutritious USDA Foods. The event, hosted as part of Older Americans Month, celebrated the partnership between FNS, Meals on Wheels, and The Salvation Army. It also showcased resources provided by the Baltimore City Health Department’s Division of Aging and Care Services and MDOA for older adults that complement CSFP enrollments.
