Congregate Lunch Café

Senior Nutrition Program

Gold Country Senior Services has been providing senior nutrition programs for older adults in Western Nevada County since 1987. We provide hot nutritious meals in a warm and friendly setting that provides older adults an opportunity to socialize. Each meal is prepared fresh and from scratch.
