How do I enroll in the CHAMPSS Program?
To learn more AND register for this program for seniors, plan to attend an enrollment session. Our last enrollment session for the foreseeable future will be on September 21. Please call the CHAMPSS Line at 913-715-8894 for location and time.
How much does a CHAMPSS meal cost?
The suggested donation is $3.50 per meal. The actual cost of each meal is more than $5, so you are invited to be as generous as you can with your donation. Donations are sent in with your meal order, so there is no need to provide anything other than your swipe card at Hy-Vee. Meals are funded in part through the Older Americans Act and the Kansas Department on Aging.
