The SE MN Area Agency on Aging, Inc. has Federal funding available for qualified responders to provide congregate and home delivered meals targeted to older adults in the eleven-county area of southeastern Minnesota (Region 10). These federal Older Americans Act and state funded programs provide nutritionally sound and satisfying meals to older persons in a group setting, congregate meals, and home delivered meals to homebound persons. Local site management, targeting to those at risk and information linkages to other services are also included with meals. The service area for congregate meals must include Dodge, Fillmore, Freeborn, Goodhue, Houston, Mower, Olmsted, Rice, Steele, Wabasha and Winona counties. Only multi-county service proposals will be considered for home delivered meals. The contract will be for Jan. 1, 2016 through Dec. 31, 2016. The possibility to renew annually for up to five years is based on successful performance and available funds.
