The Fresh Conversations program offers food, fun and friendly conversation to help you maintain your health and independence. Once a month, older adults gather together at a congregate meal site to learn from each other, sample new recipes, discuss current nutrition and health topics, and discover new ways to be active.

Passionate people lead the monthly Fresh Conversations meetings and make it easy for you to stay on a path to healthy aging. People support each other by sharing creative and simple ideas for eating well and being active. Older adults have a lifetime of experiences and knowledge that have great value, so come to a meeting, enjoy good food and let your voice be heard!
Volunteer to be a leader for Fresh Conversations meetings!
To allow more people to participate in Fresh Conversations, volunteers are needed to lead Fresh Conversations meetings at congregate meal sites. Training and leader guides are provided. To view a brochure about volunteering as a Fresh Conversations Facilitator, please click here.
What are the requirements? We are looking for fun people who enjoy and respect older adults. A background in nutrition is not required – they just need a great attitude toward improving personal health. The monthly meetings are held at meal sites across central Iowa.
If you or someone you know is interested in volunteering to be a meeting leader, please call (515) 633-9518 for more information.
