Eating a well-balanced diet is necessary for health, functionality, and the ability to remain at home in the community. For older adults, good nutrition can help maintain physical and immune function, prevent and manage chronic disease, support mental wellbeing and recovery from ill-health. As part of the Cass County COA’s mission to provide services and programs to assist individuals to age and live well with dignity and independence, we provide a number of options to help older adults get the meals and nourishment they need.
Nutritionally-balanced hot meals will be served in the dining rooms at the Lowe Center in Cassopolis and Front Street Crossing in Dowagiac.
Cost: Free* for people 60 and older & $6.00 for people under 60. Due to restrictions from the funding source, all free meals need to be eaten in the dining room.
How to Get: Come to the Lowe Center or Front Street Crossing Monday - Friday between 11:45am and 1:00pm (except for holidays)
