Friendly Fork (Senior Nutrition)
The Senior Nutrition Program provides nutritious and delicious lunches for seniors served at twenty-three sites throughout Weld County. Social and educational opportunities are also available before and after meals. Participants have the opportunity to voluntarily contribute whatever they can afford to help offset the cost of the meal. Our suggested minimum donation is posted at each nutrition site. The Senior Nutrition Program’s meal meets 33 1/3 percent of the daily recommended dietary allowance.
Who can dine with us?
- If you are at least 60 years of age
- If you are a spouse of a person at least 60 years of age
- If you are under the age of 60 and are currently residing in a subsidized housing complex that offers a nutrition meal site on location
- Guests are welcome to attend the program but are required to pay a guest fee.
When you are ready to join us for lunch, please call and make a reservation at the meal site you wish to attend. Reservations and cancellations are required and must be made 24 hours in advance. If you are unable to cancel your reservation, a donation is encouraged. The meals are provided at various locations throughout Weld County.

Senior Site Support

A core of about 300 volunteers contributes more than 20,000 hours annually to keep the Friendly Fork Program going. The impact to the Area Agency on Aging and the Friendly Fork (Senior Nutrition) Program is undeniable. Volunteers provide services that support every aspect of our organization's work from our side coordinators handling our administrative support functions to our kitchen teams setting up, serving and cleaning up for our Senior Nutrition meals and events. It is an amazing effort and we are deeply grateful for it.
