Volunteers of America's Seniors’ Nutrition Program provides nutritious meals, access to community resources and positive social interaction at Congregate Dining Centers.
Adams, Arapahoe, Clear Creek, Denver, Douglas, Gilpin, Jefferson and Larimer counties.
Each congregate meal consists of an entrée and the accompaniments such as vegetables, fruits, breads, milk, etc. that provide at least one-third of the recommended daily nutrients for older adults. The meals are low in fat, cholesterol and sodium, and provide the nutrition older adults need without the additional calories.
Anyone 60 years of age or older is eligible to participate in the program. In specific circumstances, other individuals qualify for services. To find out if you, or someone you know, is eligible for congregate nutrition services please contact:

Larimer County Services: 970.472.9630
There is no charge for any of the services provided, however, a $2.50 donation is suggested per meal. No one is denied service because of an inability to make a contribution.
