Enjoy a hot, nutritious, congregate meal! A suggested donation of $4 is kindly requested if you are age 60 and older. Persons under the age of 60 are required to pay $8.

NSI provides this service in part, under the Federal Older Americans Act through a contract with the NWRDC under an area plan approved by the Minnesota Board on Aging. 

CALL TO ACTION: Meals for older adults are seriously underfunded in Minnesota and, as a result, the health of older Minnesotans is at risk. We need your help to add $10 million to the Senior Nutrition Program under Minnesota Statutes, section 256.9752. Click here to learn more.
