Governor Rendell Proclaims Older Pennsylvanians' Nutrition Awareness Week
Date:3/5/2008

HARRISBURG, Pa., March 5 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Governor Edward G. Rendell today proclaimed March 10-14 as Older Pennsylvanians' Nutrition Awareness Week and encouraged people of all ages to consider how simple dietary changes can help to improve their health and enjoyment of life.

"Eating properly is a major factor in staying healthy, and that's especially true for older adults," Governor Rendell said. "Pennsylvania is third in the nation for the percentage of seniors and their care and health are very important to me, which is why I encourage them to learn about and practice good nutrition."

March is also National Nutrition Month.

The Department of Aging and the state's 52 Area Agencies on Aging offer information and programs on proper nutrition for older citizens. Volunteer and community-based programs also support the nutritional needs of older Pennsylvanians.

"The Department of Aging invests more than $64 million each year to provide meals for more than 168,000 older Pennsylvanians," said agency Secretary Nora Dowd Eisenhower. "It provides 10 million nutritious meals annually. Proper nutrition is the first step toward having a healthy and productive life."

The department is now canvassing seniors about their needs and concerns through town meetings that are being held across the state. Their input will be used in creating the new State Plan on Aging, which will guide the direction of services to older adults from 2008 through 2012.

Information about the State Plan and services for seniors as well as a daily food guide are available at http://www.aging.state.pa.us.

The Rendell administration is committed to creating a first-rate public education system, protecting our most vulnerable citizens and continuing economic investment to support our communities and businesses. To find out more about Governor Rendell's initiatives and to sign
