A summit on food insecurity has been hosted by the Age Well Community Council of Danbury and the United Way of Western Connecticut. More than 100 people from various organizations attended the forum on Thursday, which had a particular focus on seniors. The federal government started monitoring food security in the 1990s, based on 18 survey questions. Participants noted that people are living longer and might be outliving their savings they put aside, and Social Security allocations don’t accurately reflect real cost of living increases. They also said there's a need to break the stigma of food insecurity.
