CHAMPSS senior food program gaining fame, enthusiasm!

The CHAMPSS (Choosing Healthy Appetizing Meal Plan Solutions for Seniors) program, which offers seniors a dining alternative to congregate meal sites, has received publicity that is enhancing the interest of other nutrition programs and groceries.

Nancy Tanquary, manager of the Johnson County Human Services Nutrition Program, attended the Meals on Wheels Association of America Annual Conference and Expo in Pittsburgh, Pa., and was one of three presenters on a panel titled The Congregate Program: Breathing New Life into an Old Program.

About 75 persons from around the country attended the session, including the nutritionist from the Administration on Aging in Washington, D.C. Tremendous interest in the CHAMPSS program was expressed; Tanquary was peppered with questions and participants stayed after the presentation to prolong the discussion.  Tanquary also presented the CHAMPSS program to Kansas Community Nutrition Services, and The Best Times newspaper featured CHAMPSS, and has had many inquiries from other nutrition programs and grocery markets including a senior meals program in Eugene, Ore.; Clay County, Missouri;  a Hy-Vee in Topeka; the Southwest Kansas Planning Service Area 06; and ElderCare, Inc. in Great Bend, Kan.

CHAMPSS was developed by the Johnson County Area Agency on Aging and is funded through the Older Americans Act in partnership with several Hy-Vee stores in Johnson County. Through the program, adults 60 and older can receive a hot, nutritious meal 7 days a week between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. The Hy-Vee dietitian-approved menu allows seniors to select an entrée, fruit, and vegetable of their choice along with bread and low-fat milk for a suggested donation of $4.00 per meal. Johnson County residents who are 60 or older are eligible; to learn more, call 913-715-8894.
