Mountain Projects' Congregate Nutrition Program supports seniors

Jan 13, 2017

Mountain Projects, Inc., operates three nutrition sites in Haywood County.  One site is located in Waynesville at 44 Boundary St. in the Old Armory, one site is located at 3987 Soco Road in Maggie Valley at the Town Hall Building, and the other is located at 1 Pigeon St. in Canton at the Senior Center.

The nutrition programs have been part of the lives of seniors in Haywood County for many years.  The Centers’ goals are to involve, enrich and empower seniors in their local communities. The centers offer a nutritionally balanced lunch Monday through Friday, asking for only a small donation.

Participants age 60 and above engage in different activities including health screenings and promotions, creative arts, exercise, special events, guest speakers, and games.  The centers have computers, offer field trips for shopping and out to eat. In general, a good time with old friends and new is had by all who attend.
