Congregate meals are meals that are served to senior citizens in a group setting, typically at senior centers or other community locations. These meals are coordinated by the Senior Nutrition Program, and are an excellent way for seniors to get the nutrition they need while also socializing with other members of their community.
The City of Las Cruces Senior Nutrition Program provides congregate meals to seniors at three different locations and "Grab and Go" meals at the other two locations across the city. These meals are designed to meet the nutritional needs of seniors, and they are an important part of maintaining good health. The Senior Nutrition Program is a great way for seniors to get the nutrients they need, and to enjoy a meal with their friends and neighbors.
