Westlake Village, CA (PRWEB) February 25, 2013
Good nutrition is the foundation of good health for everyone—but it’s especially important for the older population—the single largest demographic group at disproportionate risk of inadequate diet and malnutrition.
According to the National Institute of Health, eating a balanced mix of foods every day has many health benefits including reducing the risk of heart disease, stroke, type 2 diabetes, bone loss, some kinds of cancer, and anemia. Healthy eating may also help reduce high blood pressure, lower high cholesterol, and manage diabetes.
To help low-income and homebound seniors have access to healthy meals, Westlake Village dentist Dr. Anthony Montella of Advanced Prosthodontic Specialists recently joined up with the Ventura County Senior Nutrition Action Council .
The Ventura County Senior Nutrition Action Council (SNAC) is a nonprofit organization that works with the Ventura County Area Agency on Aging to support the county’s senior nutrition lunch program. Last year, SNAC provided more than 190,000 meals to help feed seniors in Ventura County.
SNAC’s mission is to help feed senior citizens who are homebound or needy.
“Many seniors are on fixed incomes and struggling to pay for the basics,” said Dr. Montella. “There are many programs designed especially for seniors at the national, state and local levels and we are proud to now be sponsoring SNAC to help seniors right here in our own community.”
