Welcome To Hugh Doyle Senior Center
Aside from your appetite, we encourage you to bring your interests, talents, skills, and friendly cheer for the various social activities you will be invited to participate in. Whether you take part in an exercise program, bingo, arts & crafts or outings, we hope you make new friendships and have a wonderful time.
The menus meet the current Dietary Guidelines for Americans, providing1/3 the dietary reference intake established by the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine and National Academy of Sciences. Although therapeutic diets are not provided, menus planned are heart healthy and can fit into most diabetic meal plans. Each meal provides a range of 600 to 800 calories and limits sodium to less than 800 mg for most meals.
We utilize Federal, State, and local funding to help support the meal program and other services you may participate in. We ask that you complete a brief registration form when you first come to the Nutrition Program. Your answers will not affect your ability to participate in the program but, in fact, will help protect the vitality and funding received. The information you provide may help us protect you in an emergency situation and may also enable us to provide you with other services. Nutrition Program staff are available if you need help filling out the registration form. The staff had been trained to protect and respect your privacy.
Transportation to and from the Nutrition Program is also available. Please speak to staff to arrange for this service.
Finally, we ask for a small suggested monetary contribution towards your meal. Your contribution is voluntary - you will not be denied lunch due to inability or unwillingness to contribute. You can make your contributions anonymously by using one of the envelopes provided at the registration table. All seniors can participate in the meal program regardless of income or need.
If your income is at or above 185% of the federal poverty level you are encouraged to contribute at an amount equal to the actual cost of the meal. For example, if your monthly income is more than $1815 and you live alone (or $2456 for an household of two) your contribution of the actual cost of the meal would be appreciated. The actual cost of the meal is posted at the nutrition program.
