Celebrating 50 Years of the Senior Nutrition Program

March 1, 2022

50 Years. Senior Nutrition Program. Celebrate. Innovate. Educate.

March 2022 is the 50th Anniversary of the Senior Nutrition Program

Since 1972, the national Senior Nutrition Program has supported nutrition services for older adults across the country. Funded by the Older Americans Act, local senior nutrition programs serve as hubs for older adults to access nutritious meals and other vital services that strengthen social connections and promote health and well-being.

This March, we are proud to recognize the 50th anniversary of the Senior Nutrition Program with our theme, "Celebrate. Innovate. Educate." We are celebrating the many accomplishments of the national and local programs, acknowledging innovative approaches to serving older adults, and educating communities to better understand nutrition services.
