Senior centers have historically been gathering places for good nutrition for older adults, such as for congregate meals.
What role are senior centers playing now in providing nutrition for older adults, and how is this role changing?
Is it about more linkages to nutrition and health through activities and education? Through what types of innovations does a senior center maintain its older base of participants while attracting the younger senior? Is there value in intergenerational programs in centers?
These topics and more will be addressed during this session.
