NUTRITION

  • Meals on Wheels Support Fund
    Meals on Wheels provides home-delivered meals to Broomfield residents 60 and older or disabled who are either homebound or unable to prepare their own meals. 

    • SRB provides assistance for those who qualify, by paying 50% or 100% of their meal fees. 

  • Lakeshore Café Support Fund
    SRB provides assistance for congregate lunches held at the Broomfield Community Center. This program helps many older adults enjoy a nutritious lunch while socializing with friends.

    • SRB provides assistance for those who qualify, by paying half or all of their meal fees.  

  • Project Homecoming: Hospital Release and Recovery Program
    Upon release from a local hospital, Broomfield residents 60 and older can receive 5 free meals through Meals on Wheels. This is a great way to let older adults try the Meals on Wheels program, at no cost, during a time when nutrition is most needed.

    • SRB pays for 5 free Meals on Wheels.
       

  • Healthy Hearts Lunch Sponsorship
    Healthy Hearts lunches are the most popular lunches of the month. On average, eighty-five older adults enjoy this nutritious lunch, twice a month, at a reduced rate of $2.00. The lunch is followed by an educational presentation by the Public Health Nutritionist.

    • SRB funds one lunch per month at half cost to the older adult.

  • Birthday Lunch Sponsorship

Lakeshore Café celebrates seniors’ birthdays on a monthly basis. For some, this is the only chance they get to celebrate their birthday.

  • SRB treats them to lunch and a special goodie bag.

COMMUNITY RESOURCES
