Program Objectives

The meal program is designed to provide a nutritious, affordable meal to the area senior citizens. Meals on Wheels are home delivered by community volunteers to those individuals who are unable to take advantage of the social setting that congregate meals have to offer. SENCA currently operates Congregate and Meals on Wheels Programs in Pawnee and Johnson Counties at the Community Action Centers. Various forms of Congregate and Meals on Wheels Programs are available in Nemaha and Richardson Counties.

Program History

Since the beginning of the meal program in 1970, SENCA has served more than 500,000 Congregate meals and 600,000 Meals on Wheels in the six county service area. Meal programs have been initiated and developed in other locations throughout the years with responsibility for operations being assumed by other groups within those communities.

Eligibility Guidelines

The meal programs target the homebound and/or seniors 60 years of age or older, although a guest of any age is always welcome. There are no specific income guidelines since meal costs are suggested donations. Individuals with a financial barrier to making those donations will be assisted in becoming certified through the Department of Health and Human Services for the Title XX Meal Provision Program.
