The Senior Citizen Nutrition Program serves hot, well balanced meals five days a week in congregate dining centers. The meals are served at the Westminster Community Center. No pre-registration is necessary. Meals are served on a first come, first served basis.
The meals are designed to include one-third of the recommended dietary allowance (RDA). Menus typically include an entree, two vegetables, bread, desert, milk, and juice. The meals are prepared and served hot from our stainless steel commercial kitchen.
For senior on restricted diets, the meals are low fat, low sodium, and low in sugar. Complex carbohydrates are stressed.
Meals are also delivered to "Shut-ins" senior who are too ill or incapacitated to come to one of the sites.
This is a free meal lunch program. Seniors are asked to contribute $1.00 - $1.25 per congregate or homebound meal. Non-seniors are required to pay a guest fee.
ABRAZAR's Westminster and Midway City Community Centers provide hot, home delivered meals to low income " shut-in" senior citizen who cannot afford to contribute the "suggested" contribution. The seniors served are those living alone, too old, frail, or sick to prepare adequate meals.
