Silver Key to Manage the Golden Circle Nutrition Program
Silver Key Senior Services - 01/13/15
January 13, 2015, Colorado Springs, CO - In an agreement with the Colorado Springs Housing Authority, management of the Golden Circle Nutrition Program was transferred to Silver Key Senior Services effective January 1, 2015.

The Golden Circle Nutrition Program offers low-cost nutritious lunches to persons 60 years of age and older, their spouses, disabled residents in a Housing Authority owned building where a meal is provided, and volunteers. It provided meals to approximately 2,100 seniors in 2014. The Housing Authority has managed the program since 1975.

Silver Key is the leading senior serving organization in the greater Colorado Springs area and has been providing nutrition assistance to people 60+ since 1971. The Nutrition Program has included Meals on Wheels, two federal food assistance programs, a pantry program, and an emergency food pantry. With the addition of Golden Circle, Silver Key will now be able to provide nutrition services in congregate settings.

"We are excited to work with Silver Key to consolidate nutrition services for seniors. In a time of resource constraints, we hope this consolidation will result in a more efficient, coordinated delivery of food programs for the elderly in our community" said Chad Wright, Executive Director of the Colorado Springs Housing Authority.

Patricia Ellis, Silver Key CEO said "Bringing Golden Circle under the Silver Key umbrella allows us to consolidate kitchen staff and serve more seniors. We continue to see need increasing while resources are decreasing, so it's important to eliminate duplication of services while continuing to provide a quality product."

Silver Key does not plan to make any changes to the Golden Circle Nutrition Program at this time. For more information about all Silver Key Nutrition Programs please check the website at www.silverkey.org/nutrition.
