Nutrition Programs

Food, fun and fellowship are what Senior Dining is all about. Enjoy a nutritious meal at a warm, friendly Senior Dining Site in the company of friends.  Volunteer, meet people and partake in activities and educational opportunities.

All meals are nutritionally analyzed by a registered dietician to meet 1/3 of the daily recommended allowances for seniors. Meals are low in cholesterol and sodium and diabetic alternatives are available.  Meals help people remain independent in their own homes and may provide short term assistance for people recovering from an illness, injury or surgery.

Congregate Dining

Who is Eligible?

  • You must be 60 or better
  • An underage spouse or domestic partner of an eligible participant
  • An informal caregiver or disabled person who lives with an eligible senior and accompanies them to a meal site
  • A disabled person that lives in a housing unit that hosts a meal site and is occupied mostly by seniors
What Is the Cost?

You are not “charged” for a meal, but a contribution per meal is suggested to help defray program costs.  The suggested contribution is $5.00 at all restaurant sites and $4.25 for all other sites. You may contribute more or less towards the meal depending on your financial situation.  The actual cost of a congregate meal is $12.00 per meal. No one over 60 will be denied a meal due to inability to contribute.
