Senior nutrition programs celebrate 40 years!


Fri, Oct 18th, 2013
Posted in Rushford Health & Wellness

Across Minnesota, Senior Nutrition Programs - often referred to as “Senior Dining” and “Meals on Wheels” - are celebrating their 40th year of service in the state.

In July of 1973, the Governor’s Citizen’s Action Council on Aging awarded its first Older American’s Act grants for the purpose of establishing “nutrition programs for the elderly.” Semcac was one of the agencies to receive a grant. Senior Dining meal sites and Meals on Wheels services were established throughout Region X. By year-end, Semcac was serving 1,000 meals per week in 16 communities. Today they serve over 1,300 meals per ‘day’ in 52 locations. Across Minnesota 3.6 million meals per year are served at 600 meal sites.

The Senior Nutrition Programs are more than just a meal! In addition to the nutritious meal, the dining sites offer opportunities for socialization, volunteering, education, and are links to other community services that promote independent living.

In honor of the 40th anniversary, the local Senior Dining site in Rushford located at Tenborg Center invites the public to a “Meal of Celebration” on October 24, 2013. Meal reservations will be required. To join us or to find out more about the program, please call 507-864-2786 between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m.

We hope to see you there!
