The El Dorado County Senior Nutrition Program is set to re-open its Senior Nutrition meal site in Cameron Park. Beginning February 6, 2017, nutritious lunches for seniors (ages 60+) will be served on Mondays and Fridays from 12:00 to 12:30 p.m. at the Cameron Park Community Center located at 2502 Country Club Drive in Cameron Park. Each meal will be provided for the suggested donation of only $3.00.

“We are so happy to offer this service to our seniors in Cameron Park,” said Michelle Hunter, manager of El Dorado County Senior Services. “The Senior Nutrition Program provides a great opportunity for seniors to not only get a nutritious, affordable meal, but to also stay active and connected with others in the community. We greatly appreciate our partnership with the Cameron Park Community Services District and our wonderful volunteers who are helping in this effort.”  

The Senior Nutrition Program currently provides meals for seniors at seven congregate meal sites throughout the County, including in Placerville, El Dorado Hills and South Lake Tahoe. The Cameron Park site, which originally opened in fall 2015, was temporarily discontinued in November 2016 due to a shortage of volunteers. Volunteers have since been recruited and trained for the site. Volunteers serve in various roles, such as helping in the kitchen, serving meals in the dining room and signing in seniors.  

For more information about the Senior Nutrition Program, including a full list of meal sites and menus, please visit www.edcgov.us/hhsa.  For questions about the program, or to volunteer at one of the meal sites, please call (530) 621-6160. Senior Nutrition is a program of the El Dorado County Health and Human Services Agency.
