Senior Nutrition and Wellness
The Senior Nutrition and Wellness program builds strong communities by giving seniors the opportunity to network with peers while celebrating and upholding cultural traditions.
The number of refugee and immigrant seniors in King County has grown considerably in the last decade. Many refugee and immigrant seniors live alone and suffer from depression and loneliness. Furthermore, language, cultural, and transportation barriers prevent them from accessing mainstream community resources.
By engaging in social and physical activities, seniors are able to form connections and break the cycle of loneliness and isolation.
Culturally and linguistically appropriate services include
- Nutritious ethnic meals
- Nutrition education
- Nutritional and fitness-themed field trips
- Assistance in connecting to community resources
Our free senior meal service is structured to bring together senior participants and their peers to share stories and socialize.
- Vietnamese Senior Meal
- Fridays, 11:00 a.m. – 1:30 p.m. at ReWA’s Main Office
