Senior Nutrition

Eating right is vital to good health

Our eating habits often change, but good nutrition is especially important in maintaining good health as we age. Minnesota communities offer a spectrum of meal services, from Home Delivered Meals to Senior Dining Centers. Call the Senior LinkAge Line® at 1-800-333-2433 for information on what is available in your community.

Who is eligible for senior dining services?

Anyone who is 60 years of age or older (and spouse) is welcome to participate.

How do I qualify?

The guidelines for Meals on Wheels are different than Senior Dining. Call the Senior LinkAge Line® to determine which program best fits your needs.

Is it free?

A free-will donation is requested to help pay for the meal and services.

Are you at risk?
