Senior Nutrition

The Redding Rancheria Title VI Senior Nutrition Program is funded by a grant from the Federal Agency on Aging. The program offers socialization, transportation and free mealsin a congregate setting and provides valuable information for services that are available within the community to eligible elders.

We also provide frozen meals every two weeks to elders unable to come to lunch for medical reasons. The clients are Native Americans 55 years or older and their spouses regardless of heritage. Disabled persons living with an elder are also eligible.
