Generations United invites you to the release of our 2022 State of Grandfamilies Report, Together at the Table: Supporting the Nutrition, Health, and Well-Being of Grandfamilies, on Wednesday, November 2.
Across the U.S., more than 2.5 million children live in grandfamilies, meaning that their grandparents, other relatives, or close family friends are raising them because their parents cannot. Grandfamily caregivers often face financial challenges and frequently struggle to access enough nutritious food for the children and themselves. The 2022 State of Grandfamilies Report features new data on the rates of food insecurity among grandfamilies, collected in partnership with the Food Research & Action Center (FRAC). It also elevates impacted voices to explore the barriers to food access, highlights effective programs, and recommends policy solutions to eliminate food insecurity and hunger.
The report release event will feature key report findings, new data, and a conversation with members of grandfamilies facilitated by author and journalist Michelle Singletary.
The event will be held in person at the National Press Club in Washington, DC and simultaneously live streamed. You will need to register if you plan to attend in person or view the live stream. In-person seating is limited.
