Active Generations’ Nutrition Program

Proper nutrition is vital to good health. Active Generations provides multiple ways to ensure seniors have a reliable source of prepared, warm food each day. We offer meals at the Active Generations’ facility and Meals-on-Wheels for those who are unable to travel. You’ll find detailed information below and in the links to our various programs.

For more information, contact:

Nutrition Director, Priscilla Thornton at (605) 333-3304 or pthornton@activegen.org

Eligibility

Anyone 60 years of age or over, as well as their spouse or dependent adult who resides at home with the participant are eligible for the nutrition program. Persons under 60 years of age may participate at full cost of the meal or by calling the Department of Social Services at 605-367-5444.

Funding for Senior Meals is a joint effort between federal and state governments, community support and participant donations.

Persons over the age of 60 are asked to contribute as much as they feel they can afford towards the cost of the meal. The average donation is $4.00 per meal (as of September 1, 2016).

Persons under the age of 60 pay the full cost of the meal which is $6.75.
