ENOA Developing “Grab & Go” Meal Service For Seniors in Wake of Senior Center Closings

FREMONT – The Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging (ENOA) is committed to serving and protecting older Nebraskans who are the most vulnerable to the COVID-19. Beginning Wednesday, March 18, 2020, the ENOA offices will be closed to the general public. A limited number of staff members will work at the office while others will be available at home via email or telephone.

With the recommendation from Gov. Pete Ricketts and the CDC to limit all gatherings to 10 individuals or less, the Eastern Nebraska Office on Aging will be closing its senior centers in Douglas, Sarpy, Dodge, Cass, and Washington counties effective Wednesday March 18, 2020.

In order to provide a nutritious meal to individuals who regularly attend a senior center, ENOA is developing a “Grab and Go” program which will be implemented some time the week of March 23, 2020. ENOA will work with its community partners to provide this program in the area to the current participants displaced from the senior centers during the closure.

ENOA’s Meals on Wheels program will continue with business as usual for the frail in-home clients.
