We provide hot, nutritionally balanced meals, nutrition education and other appropriate counseling to older adults. Some programs include a group meal, which is a great opportunity for socializing with other seniors.

NWICA Restaurant Voucher Program
To meet the changing needs of the customers we serve, NWICA has developed new program options especially in the area of Nutrition.
NWICA offers a Restaurant Voucher Program. A local restaurant is used as the daily meal site. In this non-traditional setting, program participants meet at the restaurant during an identified time and use program coupons to eat a heart healthy and nutritious meal. We provide nutritional support for older adults in a family and community friendly environment. Menu choices include breakfast, lunch and dinner options. For more information regarding eligibility and other program requirements, please call 1.800.826.7871.
NWICA Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program
The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program provides eligible senior citizens with checks to use at their local farmers’ markets to purchase fresh locally grown fruits and vegetables.
The health benefits of consuming fresh produce, the social interaction provided at the market, and the financial savings makes this a highly desired program for both seniors and farmers.
