Help us fund Congregate Meals at the St. Michael's Senior Center! The funds from Give65 will be donated to Upper Shore Aging, Inc. to go toward their partnership with the St. Michaels Family YMCA, to fund congregate meals at the new St. Michaels Senior Center.
Congregate meals are served at lunch time to seniors 60 years of age or older for a suggested donation of $2.75. No one is turned away due to their inability to pay.
The congregate meals program provides a nutritious meal to older adults who might otherwise eat unhealthy, unbalanced meals. The seniors who participate in the meals program also benefit from the opportunity to socialize with other seniors. Nutrition education is provided to encourage healthy eating and healthy lifestyles.
The manager at Brookletts Place - Talbot Senior Center has said that for some of the participants the noon-time congregate meal is "the only full meal they receive during the day."
The mission of Upper Shore Aging, Inc. is to develop and provide a variety of programs for older persons which help maintain and improve quality of life.
