Older adult malnutrition food insecurity: Videos and resources

Friday, April 19, 2024/Categories: News Board

The Commonwealth Council on Aging, with funding from a Geriatric Training and Education (GTE) grant from the Virginia Center on Aging (VCoA) at VCU, has developed five microlearning videos on older adult malnutrition and food insecurity and the services/programs that can help address those issues. The five videos, each roughly 2 minutes long, are as follows:

  • Video #1: Overview of Malnutrition and Food Insecurity
  • Video #2: Congregate (Group) and Home Delivered Meal Programs
  • Video #3: SNAP/Food Banks/Food Pantries
  • Video #4: Farm Market Fresh & Virginia Fresh Match
  • Video #5: Disease Prevention Self-Management Programs

The Council partnered with No Wrong Door (NWD) to house the videos on the public-facing Virginia Easy Access website and on NWD’s training platform.

The videos and the accompanying resources were debuted through a statewide webinar on March 26 through the Virginia Governor’s Conference on Aging Webinar Series with the Virginia Association of Area Agencies on Aging. You can watch the March 26 webinar recording here.
