About the Meals

Seniors gathered at congregate meal siteAll meals meet 1/3 of the dietary reference intake for seniors and are approved by a registered dietitian.

Seniors who attend this program participate in variety of programs such as exercise, arthritis management, arts and crafts, bingo and trips.
