Community nutrition programs are important for older adults living alone and/or those who are financially at risk. This program provides nutritious meals along with opportunities for socialization and volunteering at local community settings in DeKalb County.
Congregate meal sites are available to those senior citizens ages 60 and over and their spouses, and others that qualify. There are three congregate luncheon sites throughout DeKalb County where seniors can go to enjoy a meal, socialize with others, and catch up on the news of the day. At times throughout the month, some sites participate in activities such as bingo, birthday celebrations, holiday get-together, informational and community presentations.
Reservations for a meal are recommended in advance. Participants are provided an opportunity to make a donation towards the cost of the meal.
