The Senate passed the Older Americans Re-authorization Act of 2015, by a voice vote. This bill calls for greater use of locally grown fresh foods in nutrition programs, includes language to more directly utilize dietitians in senior nutrition programs, and clarifies policy on supplemental foods given with home delivered meals. These improvements, combined with maintaining separate funding for congregate and home-delivered meals and keeping contributions from participants voluntary, will ensure that the largest program in the Older Americans Act (OAA) continues to be effective in its important mission.
Tip of the day
Be a healthy role model. Help children develop healthy eating habits for life. Cook together, eat together, talk together, and make mealtime a family time!
No matter what sin we have committed, no matter how black, dirty, shameful, or terrible it may be, God loves us. We may be at the very gate of hell itself, but God loves us with an everlasting love. Because of his love there is a way of salvation, a way back to God through Jesus Christ, his son.
“Greater love hath no man than this, that a man lay down his life for his friends.”
