Tydlose landbou

Om die uitdagings van 'n verouderende bevolking die hoof te bied, besef baie organisasies regoor die wêreld die belangrikheid daarvan om seker te maak dat ouer mense so lank as moontlik die nodige voeding kry om aktief en gesond te bly. Food Tank beklemtoon 11 programme en projekte wat ouer mense help met toepaslike voedingsopleiding, hulle met kinders verbind of toegang tot gesonde kos en 'n aktiewe leefstyl bied.


Tydlose landbou: 11 voedselprogramme deur en vir seniors

Hier is 11 programme en projekte wat ouer mense help om voedingsopvoeding te vind, hulle aan kinders te koppel of toegang tot gesonde kos en 'n aktiewe leefstyl te bied.

Hierdie week fokus Food Tank op die uitdagings - en geleenthede - wat ouer mense het om toegang tot gesonde kos te kry en ook hoe hulle hul kennis met jonger geslagte deel.

Die getal en verhouding van ouer persone - wat deur die Wêreldgesondheidsorganisasie (WGO) gedefinieer word as ouer as 60 jaar - groei in byna alle lande. Op 'n wêreldwye vlak het die bejaarde bevolking gegroei teen 'n gemiddelde jaarlikse koers van 13 persent. Teen 2050 sal die meer as 65 bevolking groei tot 1,9 miljard mense, waarvan 840 miljoen in lande met 'n lae inkomste woon.

In 2011 was byna 20 persent van die bevolking van Griekeland ouer as 65. In China is 123 miljoen mense ouer as 65. Brasilië stel voor dat 30 persent van die bevolking 60 jaar en ouer is teen 2050. Teen 2020 is die bevolking in die Amerika na 65 jaar sal na verwagting tot ongeveer 55 miljoen toeneem.

Om hierdie uitdagings die hoof te bied, besef baie organisasies regoor die wêreld die belangrikheid daarvan om seker te maak dat ouer mense so lank as moontlik die nodige voeding kry om aktief en gesond te bly. En baie ouer mense bly aktief in hul gemeenskappe en leer jonger geslagte oor tuinmaak en boerdery, koskultuur en tradisionele kookkuns.

Kritiese rasteorie: Wie kan besluit wat geskiedenis is?

Die Danny Woo Community Garden, wat in die hartjie van die sentrum van Seattle geleë is, is in 1975 geskep en maak deel uit van 1,5 hektaar van die grootste groen ruimte in die Chinatown/International District (C/ID) van Seattle. Dit bestaan ​​uit 100 erwe, wat deur 70 bejaarde Asiatiese tuiniers versorg word, en is 'n belangrike plek waar tuiniers met 'n lae inkomste kan kuier, oefen en groente kweek wat hul kulturele kosse verkies. In 2009 begin die Kindertuin met 'n intergenerasie -komponent, wat 'n unieke geleentheid is vir bejaarde tuiniers, waarvan die meeste nie Engels praat nie, om te leer en te leer van die jeug wat leer tuinmaak deur die opvoedingsprogram vir kinders se tuin.

Hierdie liefdadigheidsorganisasie het projekte in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador en Peru. Fly the Phoenix glo opvoeding en voedsel is basiese menseregte. Sarah Riggott, uitvoerende hoof van Fly the Phoenix, het berig dat hul ouer mense se program al 'n geruime tyd kos uitdeel, maar nou probeer hulle groentetuine. Hierdie tuine is in verskillende lande en bring hele gesinne bymekaar, asook voeding aan ouer manne. Fly the Phoenix streef daarna om ouer mense soveel as moontlik by die gemeenskap betrokke te hou.

In Suid -Afrika het ongeveer 1 000 pensioenarisse in Limpopo wat na hul wees gelaat word, broodnodige komberse en kospakkies van Gift of the Givers ontvang. Dit is die grootste voedsel afleweringsagentskap in Suid -Afrika. Hierdie internasionale nie-regeringsorganisasie (NRO) reageer op hongerkrisisse en voed ouer manne en hul gesinne deur 'n vinnige, goedkoop en doeltreffende stelsel van skenkings.

Hierdie wêreldwye netwerk help ouer mense om hul regte op te eis, diskriminasie uit te daag en armoede te oorkom, sodat hulle 'n waardige, veilige, aktiewe en gesonde lewe kan lei. Dit bied ouer mense die vaardigheid om stedelike en landelike mikro-ondernemings te begin, en die netwerk bedryf ook sosio-juridiese beradingsentrums (COSL) in Lima en Ayacucho, Peru, om ouer mense te leer oor hul regte en hulle te help om toegang tot regsvoordele en staatsdienste te kry waarop hulle geregtig is.

Die program Elder Nutrition and Food Safety (ENAFS) werk saam met fakulteite en personeel aan die Universiteit van Florida om die publikasie van 2006, "MyPyramid for Older Adults", te hersien en by te werk om dit in ooreenstemming te bring met nuwe dieetvoorligting en die USDA se nuwe MyPlate. MyPlate for Older Adults is in September 2011 bekendgestel en bevat laer kalorie -vlakke in die voedselplan as gevolg van die laer kaloriebehoeftes van bejaardes. Dit bevat ook voedsel wat maklik is om te koop, te kou/te sluk en/of voor te berei.

Afgetrede psigiater Joseph Sabbath woon op hierdie 162 hektaar beboste kampus. Die terrein sluit beide 'n skool en 'n aftree -gemeenskap in, wat die geleentheid bied vir bejaardes en skoolkinders om verhoudings tussen generasies te skep deur die Newbridge -tuin. Die tuin het 30 verhoogde beddens wat toeganklik is vir bejaardes. Sabbath verduidelik: "Die tuin gee hulle [skoolkinders] die kans om die rol van voedsel en groente in die alledaagse lewe te verstaan." Elke lente en herfs werk 'n groep studente saam met die aftree -gemeenskap om na die tuin te kyk, terwyl bejaardes hulle leer oor die belangrikheid van voedsel en hoe dit verbou word. 'Dit is 'n wonderlike uitlaatklep,' sê Sabbat van die tuin.

In Hebreeus vertaal Pigsah na “die bergtop waar Moses die beloofde land gesien het”. Die Pigsah-fasiliteit in Los Angeles is ontwikkel deur die organisasie Women Organizing Resources, Knowledge, and Services (WORKS) om 75 lae-inkomste bejaarde burgers te huisves en toegang tot gesonde kos en geselskap te bied.

In Japan word die land 'n 'super-verouderende samelewing' genoem, en daarom het International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) Japan besluit om middeljarige en bejaardes te teiken om hulle te help om oefening en dieetgewoontes te verbeter. Sedert 2001 is twee programme geskep: 'n Leefstylmodifikasieprogram (LiSM10!) Om vetsug te voorkom, en TAKE10! om te verhoed dat bejaardes bedlêend word deur gedragsveranderinge te rig.

Hierdie program verleen toelaes aan Amerikaanse state en gebiede, sowel as aan federaal erkende Indiese stamregerings, om seniors met 'n lae inkomste te voorsien van koepons wat verruil kan word vir vars produkte, insluitend vrugte, groente, heuning en vars gesnyde kruie by boere. markte, staanplekke langs die pad en landbouprogramme wat deur die gemeenskap ondersteun word.

In Australië was hierdie projek 'n inisiatief van Jeff Herd van die Department of Human Services (DHS) as 'n Neighborhood Renewal -projek. DHS het die behoefte aan bejaarde inwoners nodig om lae instandhouding en volhoubare tuine te hê. Die projek het 15 kliënte met hul tuine gehelp, sodat hulle onafhanklik in hul huise kon bly. Die projek het mense van alle ouderdomme bymekaar gebring, insluitend kliënte, vrywilligers, kinders van die kliënt en projekkoördineerders.

Die tuin het 30 verhoogde beddens wat toeganklik is vir bejaardes. Sabbath verduidelik: "Die tuin gee hulle [skoolkinders] die kans om die rol van voedsel en groente in die alledaagse lewe te verstaan." Elke lente en herfs werk 'n groep studente saam met die aftree -gemeenskap om na die tuin te kyk, terwyl bejaardes hulle leer oor die belangrikheid van voedsel en hoe dit verbou word. 'Dit is 'n wonderlike uitlaatklep,' sê Sabbat van die tuin.

In Hebreeus vertaal Pigsah na “die bergtop waar Moses die beloofde land gesien het”. Die Pigsah-fasiliteit in Los Angeles is ontwikkel deur die organisasie Women Organizing Resources, Knowledge, and Services (WORKS) om 75 lae-inkomste bejaarde burgers te huisves en toegang tot gesonde kos en geselskap te bied.

In Japan word die land 'n 'veroudering-samelewing' genoem, en daarom het International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) Japan besluit om middeljarige en bejaardes te teiken om hulle te help om oefening en dieetgewoontes te verbeter. Sedert 2001 is twee programme geskep: 'n Leefstylmodifikasieprogram (LiSM10!) Om vetsug te voorkom, en TAKE10! om te verhoed dat bejaardes bedlêend word deur gedragsveranderinge te rig.

Hierdie program verleen toelaes aan Amerikaanse state en gebiede, sowel as aan federaal erkende Indiese stamregerings, om seniors met 'n lae inkomste te voorsien van koepons wat verruil kan word vir vars produkte, insluitend vrugte, groente, heuning en vars gesnyde kruie by boere. markte, staanplekke langs die pad en landbouprogramme wat deur die gemeenskap ondersteun word.

In Australië was hierdie projek 'n inisiatief van Jeff Herd van die Department of Human Services (DHS) as 'n Neighborhood Renewal -projek. DHS het die behoefte aan bejaarde inwoners nodig om lae instandhouding en volhoubare tuine te hê. Die projek het 15 kliënte gehelp met hul tuine, sodat hulle onafhanklik in hul huise kon bly. Die projek het mense van alle ouderdomme bymekaar gebring, insluitend kliënte, vrywilligers, kinders van die kliënt en projekkoördineerders.

Hierdie studente-organisasie aan die Universiteit van Georgia wil die sosiale, omgewings- en voedingsvoordele van volhoubare tuinmaak bevorder deur die oprigting van 'n gemeenskapstuin wat deur studente bestuur word. UGArden is toegewy aan die bestuur van 'n tuinoppervlakte van een hektaar en het 'n onderrigtuin vir studente geword. UGArden -produkte word ook gebruik om armoede en honger in die senior bevolking van Athene te verlig, Ga. Produce word deur vrywilligers van Campus Kitchen voorberei en aan bejaardes afgelewer.

Tydlose landbou: 11 voedselprogramme deur en vir seniors

Hier is 11 programme en projekte wat ouer mense help om voedingsopvoeding te vind, hulle aan kinders te koppel of toegang tot gesonde kos en 'n aktiewe leefstyl te bied.

Hierdie week fokus Food Tank op die uitdagings - en geleenthede - wat ouer mense het om toegang tot gesonde kos te kry en ook hoe hulle hul kennis met jonger geslagte deel.

The number and proportion of older persons – defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as over 60 years old – are growing in almost all countries. On a worldwide level, the elderly population has grown at an average annual rate of 13 percent. By 2050, the over 65 population will grow to be 1.9 billion people, 840 million of whom will be living in low-income countries.

In 2011, nearly 20 percent of Greece’s population was over age 65. In China, 123 million people are over the age of 65. Brazil projects 30 percent of its population will be aged 60 and over by 2050. By 2020, the population in the United States over the age of 65 is expected to increase to about 55 million.

To meet these challenges, many organizations around the world are realizing the importance of making sure that older people are getting the nutrition they need to stay active and healthy for as long as possible. And many older people are staying active in their communities, teaching younger generations about gardening and farming, food culture, and traditional cuisines.

Here are 11 programs and projects aiding older people in appropriate nutritional education, connecting them to kids, or providing access to healthy food and active lifestyles.

Critical race theory: Who gets to decide what is history?

Located in the heart of downtown Seattle, the Danny Woo Community Garden was created in 1975 and makes up part of 1.5 acres of the largest green space in Seattle’s Chinatown/International District (C/ID). It consists of 100 plots, tended by 70 elderly Asian gardeners and is an important place where low-income gardeners can socialize, get exercise, and raise vegetables that reflect their cultural foods of choice. In 2009 the Children’s Garden began an intergenerational component which is a unique opportunity for immigrant elderly gardeners, most of whom do not speak English, to both teach and learn from the youth who are learning to garden through the Children’s Garden Educational Program.

This charity has projects in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador, and Peru. Fly the Phoenix believes education and food are basic human rights. Sarah Riggott, CEO of Fly the Phoenix, reported that their older people’s program has been handing out food for some time, but now they are trial-ing veggie gardens. These gardens are in several countries and bring together whole families as well as provide nutrition to elders. Fly the Phoenix strives to keep older people as involved in the community as much as possible.

In South Africa, about 1,000 Limpopo pensioners who care for their orphaned grandchildren received much needed blankets and food parcels from Gift of the Givers. It is the largest food parcel delivery agency in South Africa. This international non-governmental organization (NGO) responds to hunger crises, feeding elders and their families through a fast, inexpensive, and efficient system of donations.

This global network helps older people claim their rights, challenge discrimination, and overcome poverty, so that they can lead dignified, secure, active, and healthy lives. It provides older people with skills to start urban and rural microenterprises, and the network also runs socio-legal counseling centers (COSL) in Lima and Ayacucho, Peru, helping teach older people about their rights and helping them access legal benefits and state services to which they are entitled.

The Elder Nutrition and Food Safety (ENAFS) program partnered with faculty and staff at the University of Florida to review and update the 2006 publication, “MyPyramid for Older Adults,” to make it consistent with new dietary guidance and the USDA’s new MyPlate. MyPlate for Older Adults was introduced in September 2011 and includes lower calorie levels in the food plan due to the lower caloric needs of the elderly. It also includes foods that are easy to purchase, chew/swallow, and/or prepare.

Retired psychiatrist Joseph Sabbath lives on this 162-acre wooded campus. The grounds include both a school and a retirement community, which provides the opportunity for the elderly and school children to create intergenerational relationships through the Newbridge garden. The garden includes 30 raised beds, which are accessible to seniors. Sabbath explains, “The garden gives them [school children] the chance to understand the role of food and vegetables in everyday life.” Every spring and fall a group of students work with the retirement community to tend to the garden, while seniors educate them on the importance of food and how it is grown. “It’s a wonderful outlet,” said Sabbath of the garden.

In Hebrew, Pigsah translates to “the mountain top where Moses saw the promised land.” The Pigsah facility in Los Angeles has been developed by the Women Organizing Resources, Knowledge, and Services (WORKS) organization to house 75 low-income elderly citizens and provide access to healthy food and companionship.

In Japan, the country is referred to as a “super-aging society,” which is why International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) Japan decided to target middle-aged and elderly people to help them improve exercise and dietary habits. Since 2001, two programs have been created: a Lifestyle Modification program (LiSM10!) to prevent obesity, and TAKE10! to prevent the elderly from becoming bed-ridden by targeting behavioral changes.

This program awards grants to U. states and territories, as well as federally recognized Indian tribal governments, to provide low-income seniors with coupons that can be exchanged for fresh produce, including fruits, vegetables, honey, and fresh-cut herbs at farmers' markets, roadside stands, and community-supported agriculture programs.

In Australia, this project was an initiative of Jeff Herd of the Department of Human Services (DHS) as a Neighborhood Renewal project. DHS saw the need for aging residents to have low-maintenance and sustainable garden plots. The project helped 15 clients with their gardens, allowing them to remain independent in their homes. The project brought people all ages together, including clients, volunteers, client’s children, and project coordinators.

It provides older people with skills to start urban and rural microenterprises, and the network also runs socio-legal counseling centers (COSL) in Lima and Ayacucho, Peru, helping teach older people about their rights and helping them access legal benefits and state services to which they are entitled.

The Elder Nutrition and Food Safety (ENAFS) program partnered with faculty and staff at the University of Florida to review and update the 2006 publication, “MyPyramid for Older Adults,” to make it consistent with new dietary guidance and the USDA’s new MyPlate. MyPlate for Older Adults was introduced in September 2011 and includes lower calorie levels in the food plan due to the lower caloric needs of the elderly. It also includes foods that are easy to purchase, chew/swallow, and/or prepare.

Retired psychiatrist Joseph Sabbath lives on this 162-acre wooded campus. The grounds include both a school and a retirement community, which provides the opportunity for the elderly and school children to create intergenerational relationships through the Newbridge garden. The garden includes 30 raised beds, which are accessible to seniors. Sabbath explains, “The garden gives them [school children] the chance to understand the role of food and vegetables in everyday life.” Every spring and fall a group of students work with the retirement community to tend to the garden, while seniors educate them on the importance of food and how it is grown. “It’s a wonderful outlet,” said Sabbath of the garden.

In Japan, the country is referred to as a “super-aging society,” which is why International Life Sciences Institute (ILSI) Japan decided to target middle-aged and elderly people to help them improve exercise and dietary habits. Since 2001, two programs have been created: a Lifestyle Modification program (LiSM10!) to prevent obesity, and TAKE10! to prevent the elderly from becoming bed-ridden by targeting behavioral changes.

This program awards grants to U. states and territories, as well as federally recognized Indian tribal governments, to provide low-income seniors with coupons that can be exchanged for fresh produce, including fruits, vegetables, honey, and fresh-cut herbs at farmers' markets, roadside stands, and community-supported agriculture programs.

In Australia, this project was an initiative of Jeff Herd of the Department of Human Services (DHS) as a Neighborhood Renewal project. DHS saw the need for aging residents to have low-maintenance and sustainable garden plots. The project helped 15 clients with their gardens, allowing them to remain independent in their homes. The project brought people all ages together, including clients, volunteers, client’s children, and project coordinators.

Ageless agriculture: 11 food programs by and for seniors

Here are 11 programs and projects that aid older people in finding nutritional education, connect them to kids, or provide access to healthy food and active lifestyles.

This week, Food Tank is focusing on the challenges – and opportunities – older people have in accessing healthy foods and also how they're sharing their knowledge with younger generations.

The number and proportion of older persons – defined by the World Health Organization (WHO) as over 60 years old – are growing in almost all countries. On a worldwide level, the elderly population has grown at an average annual rate of 13 percent. By 2050, the over 65 population will grow to be 1.9 billion people, 840 million of whom will be living in low-income countries.

In 2011, nearly 20 percent of Greece’s population was over age 65. In China, 123 million people are over the age of 65. Brazil projects 30 percent of its population will be aged 60 and over by 2050. By 2020, the population in the United States over the age of 65 is expected to increase to about 55 million.

To meet these challenges, many organizations around the world are realizing the importance of making sure that older people are getting the nutrition they need to stay active and healthy for as long as possible. And many older people are staying active in their communities, teaching younger generations about gardening and farming, food culture, and traditional cuisines.

Here are 11 programs and projects aiding older people in appropriate nutritional education, connecting them to kids, or providing access to healthy food and active lifestyles.

Critical race theory: Who gets to decide what is history?

Located in the heart of downtown Seattle, the Danny Woo Community Garden was created in 1975 and makes up part of 1.5 acres of the largest green space in Seattle’s Chinatown/International District (C/ID). It consists of 100 plots, tended by 70 elderly Asian gardeners and is an important place where low-income gardeners can socialize, get exercise, and raise vegetables that reflect their cultural foods of choice. In 2009 the Children’s Garden began an intergenerational component which is a unique opportunity for immigrant elderly gardeners, most of whom do not speak English, to both teach and learn from the youth who are learning to garden through the Children’s Garden Educational Program.

This charity has projects in Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua, Ecuador, and Peru. Fly the Phoenix believes education and food are basic human rights. Sarah Riggott, CEO of Fly the Phoenix, reported that their older people’s program has been handing out food for some time, but now they are trial-ing veggie gardens. These gardens are in several countries and bring together whole families as well as provide nutrition to elders. Fly the Phoenix strives to keep older people as involved in the community as much as possible.
