Celebrating 50 Years of the Senior Nutrition Program
This March, the Area Agency on Aging of Western Michigan is proud to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the Senior Nutrition Program with other organizations across the country! Nutrition is a vital component of our health and well-being, especially as we age. This program has been providing meals for older adults throughout the United States since 1972 through Older Americans Act funding. At the local level, the Senior Nutrition Program covers a nine-county region (Allegan, Ionia, Kent, Lake, Mason, Mecosta, Montcalm, Osceola, and Newaygo) through partnerships with Commissions on Aging and Meals on Wheels.
