Senior Nutrition Program

The Senior Nutrition Program serves 24 communities with Congregate Dining and Home Delivered and Frozen Meals. Frozen Meals are available for weekend, holiday, emergency and rural delivery. The Program promotes health and independent living in the senior population through improved nutrition and reduction of social isolation.

Volunteers are the core of the Senior Nutrition Program. The Program could not operate without the volunteers that provide volunteer hours in numerous different capacities. Communities in the five counties also provide continuing support for the Senior Nutrition Program and its participants.

The Senior Nutrition Program is available to all ages.

Older Adults (age 60+) and their spouse who have fully completed a participant intake form, have a right to a meal based on their ability to donate.

The suggested donation rate is $4.00 - $7.00 Food Stamps (SNAP Vouchers) Accepted. For guests under 60 years of age, the charge is $7.00.

Children under 12 years of age pay $3.50 and receive 1/2 portions.

Participant donations account for over 50% of the total operating budget for the Program.
