Alta Healthcare District donated $73,992 to support its Senior Services and Meals on Wheels programs in the South Valley.

Community Services Employment Training (CSET) received a $73,992 grant from Alta Healthcare District to support its Senior Services and Meals on Wheels programs. Funds will be used for the purchase of meals provided to eligible seniors aged 60 and older residing in the Alta Healthcare District, which includes the communities of London, Monson, Sultana, Orosi, Cutler, Yettem and Dinuba.

"We are extremely grateful for the generous support and continued partnership of the Alta Healthcare District," said Jerel Dutton, assistant director of senior services at CSET. "Together we help keep local seniors from experiencing food insecurity while connecting them to essential resources that support their quality of life."

CSET operates eight senior centers in Tulare County, including the Cutler Senior Center at 12691 Ave. 408. It is anticipated that the Cutler Senior Center will gradually reach an average of 400 hot meals per month in 2023, including an additional 600 frozen meals delivered to seniors in the Alta District.

Hot lunches are provided to local seniors at the center on Mondays, Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays at 11:30 a.m.

In addition to nutritious meals, seniors are provided with supplemental food, social contact, monitoring of well-being by trained CSET staff, and more.
