AARP Foundation Hunger Hero Award to Recognize Local Volunteers for Community Service
Deadline: July 22, 2011

The AARP Foundation, which is dedicated to serving vulnerable people age 50 and over by creating solutions that help them secure the essentials to achieve the best possible quality of life, is accepting nominations for its Hunger Hero Award.

The award will be presented in December 2011 to one outstanding individual who is at least 50 years old and whose innovative work in his or her community has made a difference in the fight to end senior hunger.

The winner will receive an AARP Magazine Inspire Award, will be featured in the December/January 2012 issue of the magazine, and will receive a $15,000 donation from the AARP Foundation for his or her favorite nonprofit hunger organization.

Nominees must be legal residents of the U.S. (including Puerto Rico) and at least 50 years old. To be eligible for this year’s award, their work on hunger among older adults must have been carried out between January 2009 and July 2011.
