The goal of the Cheyenne and Arapaho Elderly Nutrition Program is to ensure that every tribal elder is able to receive a hot, nutritious meal, in our facility or delivered to their home. The program currently serves Tuesdays through Fridays from 12:00 p.m. to 1:00 p.m., and includes meals delivered to homebound participants as well as meals served in our facility. In addition, anyone is welcome to have lunch and enjoy fellowship during our regular serving hours, however, those who are not a tribal member, 55 years of age, are asked to pay $5.00 per meal.

Eligibility

Homebound participants are required to complete an application, containing a physician’s note stating the patient needs assistance with at least two ADLs (activities of daily living). This paperwork is required to be updated every six months. The Regional Food Bank also distributes snack bags to homebound elders, age 65 and over.
