To limit potential exposure to the Coronavirus/COVID-19, the Senior Dining Center closed congregate meal sites on Monday, March 16th. Currently, Senior Dining is working to deliver frozen meals to seniors once a week in Anamosa, Monticello, Oxford Junction, Olin, and Wyoming. Delivery dates are subject to change, but right now deliveries are expected for Tuesdays and Fridays.
All transporters will be wearing protective masks and gloves to protect our seniors. Please call with any questions or changes to your meal delivery.
We provide nutritious noon meals in social congregate settings, as well as home delivered meals to those that are homebound because of illness, incapacitating disability, or isolated. Our meals are analyzed to meet the recommended daily allowance of nutrients.
The Anamosa Site offers a full salad bar as well as a balanced hot meal. In addition to these services, we offer frozen meals, breakfast meals, and supper meals, which are an easy alternative to cooking. Liquid Supplements are available with a Doctors' Prescription.
- We have sites in Anamosa, Monticello, Olin, Wyoming, and Oxford Junction - These sites offer a variety of activities, games, cards, and informational speakers.
We offer the opportunity to socialize or just relax and let someone else do the cooking for you! Some of our sites offer Music, Informational Guests, and Activities (including cards, puzzles, and games) that are listed on a monthly menu at the site or in the local paper. Informational Guests and live music are scheduled on a month to month basis. Those interested can call (319) 462-4484 or toll-free at 1-866-939-4484 for current information.
The suggested contribution for a congregate or home-delivered meal based on an adjustable scale, please contact the director. The amount you contribute is up to you and based on your ability to pay. For those that are under 60 years old, the cost is a required $6.00.
We can also help assist you to find other services in the area that you may need. All contributions are confidential and help to fund the cost of the program. Please call us if we can be of assistance to you or your family.
The Jones County Senior Dining Program is available to anyone, regardless of age, race, or gender.
