Congregate Dining is a community-based meal service that is intended to increase opportunities for nutritional and social support among older adults. The program is open to older adults aged 55+ as well as disabled individuals.
A portion of the cooks’salaries are provided through grants from the Prairie Mountain Health. Participants pay a fee per meal to cover the cost of food and supplies. Current fees are $7.00 for meals eaten in the dining room, and $8.00 for takeout meals.
