long term services and supports

Senior Meals

There are 20 nonprofit Senior Meals providers in South Dakota. These providers are either Title III-C or Title VI (Older Americans Act direct funding to the tribes). Nutrition programs are sponsored by either a nonprofit organization or a tribal or local government agency. Communities desiring a nutrition program may be a satellite of an existing organization.

Senior Meals Offer

Senior Meals are an affordable way to help maintain your health. The cost of only one day in the hospital is equivalent to the cost of eating at Senior Meals for one year.

Local Support

Fifty-two percent of the program's cost is covered by local support: a combination of participant donations, matching funds or additional community resources. Some communities provide the building and the utilities. Many hours of volunteer time are donated to the program in dining room preparation, kitchen assistance and service, as well as delivery of the home-delivered meals.
