4. Meals on Wheels: The Meals on Wheels program serves Nassau County Florida. It addresses the growing threat of hunger among the elderly. Many individuals would not have enough to eat without the meals delivered regularly by a team of dedicated volunteers.

Encourage the Jacksonville City Council to formally join the AARP Age-Friendly Community Network, a nationwide group of scores of cities, counties and regions that are actively preparing to make themselves more livable for people of all ages in the future. Help Jacksonville and regional business leaders collaborate to encourage businesses to position themselves to seize opportunities as the 50-plus population grows. Have Jacksonville area businesses work with the Caregiving Coalition of Northeast Florida, a program of Community Hospice, to develop model workplace policies that support families caring for frail older loved ones. About one in 10 Floridians is a family caregiver.
