Elderly Nutrition Program
We at the Elderly Nutrition Program serve and deliver a meal to the elders and handicapped, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
We also provide the elders and handicapped with a casino card that allows $40 free play and a $10 meal once a month from the 7 Clans Casino of their choice.
Each December, we host a Christmas Party/Dinner for all Elders on the reservation. There is entertainment, a meal, candy bags, gift cards and lots of fun!
Currently, we have about 250 Elders who are on home-bound, which means they get their meal delivered every day. An additional 50-60 come in to eat daily.
We also attend the Minneapolis Urban Picnic to distribute casino cards to Elders who live in the metro area(s).
Meals are also served and delivered to the Elders and handicapped at the Ponemah site.
The Ponemah program delivers to about 32 home-bound and 40 to 50 Elders/Handicapped come in to eat.
Ponemah takes the Elders that need to run into Bemidji on Wednesdays. They also go to one of the 7 Clans Casinos on the first Saturday of every month.
