In 2022, Hyattsville Aging in Place is working to address food insecurity among older adults in the City of Hyattsville and surrounding areas. This program includes delivery of fresh produce from farmers at the Riverdale Park Farmers Market to eligible older adults in Hyattsville and delivered by HAP volunteers.
During 2021, our food insecurity program provided
- 1,400 restaurant-prepared meals through Route One Communities Care/Central Kenilworth Avenue Revitalization CDC
- 700+ pounds of fresh produce from Riverdale Park Farmers Market
- Partnered with Meals on Wheels College Park for distribution of meals
- $1,200 to stock Little Free Pantries/Blessings Boxes
- 272 grocery deliveries
- $250 worth of “Market Money” vouchers for use at the Riverdale Park Farmers Market
These efforts been made possible by HAP’s donors and volunteers, along with grants from The Greater Washington Community Foundation, the City of Hyattsville, and WAVE — Washington Area Villages Exchange. HAP continues to look for support to continue the range of services it was able to provide in 2021.
