Grant County Center on Aging Nutrition Program

Boscobel Senior Dining Site

Also located at the Tuffley Center is the Boscobel Senior Dining Site, which is one of many meal sites around the county operated by the Grant County Center on Aging. It is open to anyone 60 or over and the spouse of that person, regardless of spouse's age. Meals are served Monday through Friday at noon. An RSVP is needed by 2:00 the day before you wish to eat.

Purpose

The purpose of meal sites is to not only provide meals and services, but also outreach and socialization to seniors. The nutrition program contributes significantly to helping especially the older seniors remain in their homes. It contributes greatly to helping all seniors remain healthy, active and independent in their own homes and communities.

Home-Delivered Meals

A person 60 years and over, who is homebound by reason of illness, incapacitating disability, or is otherwise isolated, is eligible for home-delivered meal services.

Frozen Meals

Do you need weekend and/or holiday meals? We have up to 7 frozen meals a week available upon request.

If you have any questions about the nutrition program, please call Michelle at the Senior Dining Site. Call 608-375-4505 between 8:30 a.m. and 2:00 p.m.
