Senior Nutrition Program

Current lunch menu - click here
The goal of the Garfield County Senior Programs - Nutrition Program is to serve as an outreach program providing a hot nutritious meal in a community setting for seniors over 60 and their spouses. Each meal provides at least one-third of the adult daily recommended dietary intake and includes meat, starch, vegetable and or salad, bread and butter, 2% milk or buttermilk and dessert or fruit. Our program also supports socialization and is a referral system for information about senior issues and activities in the various communities served by the program.

Congregate meals are held at 7 locations throughout Garfield County. All meals are served at noon. Reservations are very important to our program to obtain accurate food count for meal preparation. New participants are welcome. Anyone attending a meal site should make a reservation by noon at least 24 hours in advance of the meal by calling the phone numbers listed below:
