El Dorado County Senior Nutrition Program plans to soon re-open its Senior
Nutrition meal site in Cameron Park and is now looking for volunteers. Training for potential volunteers will be
held on January 18, 2017, at 1:00 p.m. at the Cameron Park Community Center, in
the Social Room, located at 2502 Country Club Drive, Cameron Park. Volunteers
are needed in various roles, such as helping in the kitchen, serving meals in
the dining room and signing in seniors.

and older for a suggested donation of $3 per meal. Currently, the nutrition program
provides meals for seniors at seven congregate meal sites throughout the
County, including in Placerville, El Dorado Hills and South Lake Tahoe.
County plans to re-open its senior nutrition site at the Cameron Park Community
Center within the next 30 to 60 days, according to Michelle Hunter, program
manager with El Dorado County Senior Services. The site was temporarily
discontinued in November 2016 due to a shortage of volunteers.
truly believe in this program and are very excited about the opportunity to
again offer this service to our seniors in Cameron Park,” said Hunter. “We
greatly appreciate our partnership with the Cameron Park Community Services
District in this effort.”
