The Cisco Senior Nutrition Program is a non-profit c3 organization that delivers home-cooked well-balanced meals to those 60 years of age and over, who are unable to prepare a meal and have no one in the home that could prepare one for them (similar to Meals on Wheels). Our program began in September 2008 with volunteers who cooked and delivered 7 to 10 meals, three days a week. Since that time we have grown, expanding to a five day program. We now have four employees (an executive director, assistant; a head cook and assistant) who coordinate our delivery of over a thousand meals each month. Our meal prices for delivery are below our cost ($2 or $3.50 each depending on economic ability to pay). We also have a monthly luncheon (social) for anyone over 60 to have an opportunity to get together and visit with friends. That meal includes the drink and dessert and usually some form of entertainment for $5 per person. We pride ourselves on the quality and quantity of our food.
Last Wednesday, July 5th, the Cisco Senior Nutrition Program held their monthly luncheon at the Myrtle Wilks Community Center. Entertainment for the event was Elvis impersonator, Dan Devivo out of Stephenville. Those in attendance were treated to the interactive performance of “Elvis” and the opportunity to listen to many of Elvis’ gospel and rock and roll songs.
