Nutrition

The Vernon County Unit on Aging provides the Senior Nutrition Program to persons age sixty and older and spouses of an active senior dining participant regardless of age. Four days a week participants can gather at one of the 10 senior dining centers in Vernon County for a nutritious meal that has been approved by a registered dietitian to meet 1/3 of the recommended daily dietary needs. The senior dining centers provide “more than just a meal” in that they are community centers for diners to gather in a warm, family-like atmosphere to gain news, socialization and friendship. Donations are accepted to assist in funding this program. The suggested donation is $3.50 per meal. No one will be denied a meal regardless of ability to pay.

A registered dietitian approves all meals and is available to provide guidance to seniors on nutrition and health issues.
