Since 1972, the national Senior Nutrition Program has supported nutrition services for older adults across the country. Funded by the Older Americans Act (OAA), local programs serve as hubs where people 60+ find healthy meals and vital services that strengthen social connections and promote well-being. Every March, we celebrate our program's anniversary and its many accomplishments at the national and local levels.

The Seniors Council is proud to be a part of this program.  Click here to read more.
