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