The City of Sapulpa’s Senior Citizen Nutrition Program serves hot, well balanced meals five days a week Monday through Friday via a partnership between the City of Sapulpa and the Creek County’s Nutrition Services Provider.  The City has waived the building rental fee and does not charge the Nutrition Service provider for use of the building, thus keeping the costs as low as possible so that more of Sapulpa Senior Citizens can eat lunch and participate in the activities at the Center.

There is a suggested donation of $2.00 for persons 60 and over. There is a $5.84 fee for guests under 60.  No person over the age of 60 will be denied a meal due to lack of funds.

For more information or to make a lunch reservation please call: 224-3300.

The Greying of America-

The elderly population will increase by 80 percent over the next 25 years. While the elderly population (age 65 and older) is projected to more than double to nearly 82 million by 2050, the oldest old population (age 85 and older) is projected to quadruple by 2050.

The oldest baby boomers will be 65 in 2011, and the youngest will be 65 in 2029. As baby boomers get older, there will be an increased demand for senior citizen facilities and programs in our Community.
