Nationally, one in six older adults struggle with hunger

The Senior Nutrition program provides nutrition for both the physical body and the entire person.

We provide a comprehensive meal service that increases the well-being of participants by serving meals that contain nutrition and aging adult needs to sustain health and wellness.

We also provide opportunities for socialization through a variety of activities.  While the exact schedule varies at each site, there are activities such as games, bingo, conversation and health checks.

There is no charge to participants age 60 and older. Contributions are accepted and encouraged to help offset the costs of the program.

For more information about the meal or activities, please contact the site directly. Because we order our meals ahead, we ask that you contact the site directly to make a reservation for your meal. The costs of the meals are subsidized through Title III.


When someone is not able to get to one of our Nutrition Sites, home-delivered meals may be an option. Contact our Aging and Disability Resource Center to learn more about home-delivered meals.

Our meal sites also provide educational topics and activities that promote the physical, economic, mental, social, and physiological well-being of the participants. Each month there is a different health and nutrition topic that is covered, which correlates to the health and well-being of older adults.    

Senior Farmers Market Voucher Program
This program offers vouchers for older adults ages 60 years and older to purchase fresh produce from local farmers’ markets in the summer. 

Important Notice about 2023 Farmers Market Program:

Thrive Alliance has been informed by the Indiana State Department of Health that the new electronic benefits program and mobile app for the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program remain delayed. Since we will not be able to process applications and distribute funds in a timely fashion before markets begin to close in September and October, we have decided to step away from this program for the 2023 season.

We apologize for this hardship and want you to know that we remain dedicated to helping seniors access nutritious food options.

We look forward to participating in the 2024 season.
