Pre-COVID-19 poll of older adults hints at potential impact of pandemic on eating habits

The cooking skills that enabled half of older adults to eat dinner at home six or seven days a week may have served them well during the height of the pandemic. But they may need added support for grocery shopping as the pandemic continues.
