The Redding Rancheria Title VI Senior Nutrition Program is funded by a grant from the Federal Agency on Aging. The program offers socialization, transportation and free meals in a congregate setting and provides valuable information for services that are available within the community to eligible elders.
We are currently serving meals in the Redding Rancheria Community Center and in 2015-2016 we served a total of 12,786 meals and provided 19,220 units of supportive services. The supportive services include Tai Chi, exercise, musical performances, crafts, games, health checkups, cultural activities, referral to community programs and transportation services. Our first meal under the grant was served in November of 1999.
