Happy New Year!
The Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) Nutrition Program strives to promote health and independence with balanced nutrition and social interaction for seniors. The program provides seniors the opportunity to enjoy healthy, delicious foods, stay connected, and be active, vital members of our community. Participants aged 60 and older and their spouses can access meals at congregate dining sites or through home-delivered meals, as well as take advantage of other supportive services.
All meals are cooked from scratch with real and local ingredients in our clean certified kitchen by our experienced team of cooks. The Nutrition Program’s registered dietitian pays attention to food selection and preparation to reduce fat, sugar, and sodium, and includes a variety of foods—including local—when possible. Education is provided promoting better health through accurate and culturally sensitive information and instruction about nutrition and physical fitness.
We are happy to announce that we will re-open our senior dining sites on Monday, February 14. We have been looking forward to this day for a long time, and I’m sure you have, too. Below are some questions and answers to basic information about our program, as well as what you can expect when we open.
