Description:

Aging Resources of Central Iowa advocates, coordinates and provides services through federal, state and private funding to persons 60 years of age and older and their families. Their goal is to allow older adults individual choices in their care process in order to remain safe and independent in their homes. 

As part of this mission, their Nutrition and Healthy Living programs serve meals to older adults at congregate meal sites, coordinate home-delivered meals, and connect older adults with food assistance and nutrition education programs.

Aging Resources of Central Iowa also has a variety of other programs to support Iowans through the aging process.

How to Help:

Aging Resources of Central Iowa is in need of financial contributions and volunteers to support their mission. Volunteer opportunities include Holiday Meals-on-Wheels, Older Iowans Legislature, and Fresh Conversations (a monthly nutrition education program). More information is available on their website.
