If you are still able to move about your community, are in need of food, and would benefit from the companionship that congregate or group meals provides, this service may be of interest to you. Administered by the Area Agencies on Aging, the service provides at least one hot nutritious meal per day, five or more days per week. These meals, along with counseling, socialization, and other services, are usually provided in locations such as senior centers, schools, or churches.
The program is available to all persons age 60 or over and their spouses, regardless of age. Participants are provided with an opportunity to voluntarily contribute whatever they can afford toward the cost of these meals. Reservations are required, in most instances, 24 hours in advance. To find out what is available in your community call your County Area Agencies on Aging or call the Aging and Disability Resource Connection, at 877-222-3737.
