Food & Nutrition


These programs, partially funded by the Federal Older Americans Act, provide opportunity for hot meals within a congregate dining room or home delivered for those who are homebound.


The Older Americans Act subsidizes nutritional meals for those age 60 and older, including spouses of those 60 and older. Those eligible may eat for a donation, usually $3.00 is suggested, while those not eligible for the Older Americans Act subsidy, those under age 60, are required to pay the cost of the meals, usually $4-$6.00.

The Older Americans Act congregate and home delivered meals programs are available at many different nutritional sites throughout western Montana. Click on the link below for meal sites.


Liquid Dietary Supplement Program

Area VI nutrition programs also include an option to allow for purchase and provision of liquid dietary supplements (Ensure) when a physician has determined the need for supplements.  Eligibility requirements for this program are the same as for congregate and home delivered meals.  For more information contact your local senior center or e-mail:  wendyf@area6aging.org
