What is Dinning Out?
"Dinning Out" is an alternative to the traditional community senior nutrition program (congregate meals). The program provides participants with a nutritious meal and the opportunity to dine out in a social setting at participating restaurants, which currently are:
(Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday)
Meals offered through the program meet the federal and state nutrition standards for Nutrition Programs for the Elderly. Area residents who are 60 years old and older (and their spouses, regardless of age) are welcome to participate in the program. A suggested donation of $3.50 per meal certificate is appreciated at the time the certificates are distributed, and a maximum of 12 coupons will be distributed to a person at one time, regardless of how many participants will be using the coupons. The meal certificate must be signed by the participant who uses the coupon at the time the coupon is used, and please only use one coupon/day. In order to receive coupons, participants must register with the MCCOA and sign a NAPIS form.989-785-2580,
"Dinning Out" meal certificates are limited to the program menu. The restaurant will provide only those options under this program. Other items may be purchased at the participant's expense. The Tip/Gratuity is included with this certificate.
