Report Materials


This final report found that 18 States generally agree there are opportunities to provide more meals to older Americans, without increasing Federal expenditures, by using more USDA commodities. The AOA agreed that promoting commodity usage may better expand nutrition services at a limited cost. The AOA also believes that developing innovative ways such as emphasizing bonus commodities, to expand nutrition services at a limited cost is essential. Both AOA and USDA staff will address these issues through improved communications.
