Our seniors shouldn't worry about their next meals. We're here to make sure they don't.
The Elderly Nutrition program provides food to older Americans who are already on a tight income, living off of retirement funds, social security, SNAP (formerly food stamps), etc. The cost of medicine, utilities and rent are a stress on an already tight budget. And sometimes, an older American has to make the choice of paying for medicine or food.
The Elderly Nutrition program provides 600 seniors with food each month.Last year, the we distributed over 67,000 meals through bags and boxes of food, through Northeast Iowa Area Agencies on Aging and Senior Center Sites.
Elderly Weekend bags
Elderly Weekend Bags are provided to seniors attending congregate meal programs at senior centers in 13 counties. Each bag includes foods that seniors can use to prepare a complete meal over the weekend when congregate meal sites are closed.
Elderly Nutrition boxes
Elderly Nutrition Boxes are delivered to home-bound seniors who cannot get out to a congregate meal or pantry.
