YourMedicare℠ Tops 500K Meals Donated to Feeding America®
CLEARWATER, Fla., June 16, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- YourMedicare.com, a national, non-government organization dedicated to helping provide Medicare beneficiaries with the information they need to learn, compare and decide on their Medicare options, is excited to announce that it has provided more than 500,000 meals to Feeding America®, the nation's largest, domestic hunger-relief organization.
Starting in October 2019, every effective insurance enrollment submitted on the YourMedicareSM Enrollment Center resulted in the organization providing 10 meals to seniors, veterans, children and families in need. Since then, YourMedicare has set an aggressive goal of donating 1 million meals to Feeding America in 2020.
"In six months, we've reached the half-way point to our 1 million-meal goal, which is incredible," said YourMedicare's program leader, Matthew Graham. "But with our country experiencing the ravages of the coronavirus pandemic and the resulting economic fallout, more work is needed to provide to people who need it most, especially for our senior populations."
According to Graham, YourMedicare understands the challenges facing the senior population, which was the genesis of the program. "Our partnership with Feeding America is an additional way to support people who struggle with hunger by providing nourishing food to people who need it most," he said.
Sixty-three percent of senior households served by the Feeding America network are forced to choose between food and medical care. And as the baby boomer generation ages, the number of seniors facing hunger is only expected to increase.
