Healthy Meal Plans

CHAMPSS

The Johnson County Area Agency on Aging (AAA) Nutrition Program is pleased to offer a dining opportunity called CHAMPSS, a program for adults 60 or older and their spouses. 

CHAMPSS, which stands for Choosing Healthy Appetizing Meal Plan Solutions for Seniors, is offered through the Older Americans Act, a federally funded program, and the Nutrition Program/AAA, in partnership with many Hy-Vee stores in the area.

Through the program, appropriately aged adults may receive a nutritious meal 7 days a week any time between 8:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m. in the dining area of the grocery store. The Hy-Vee dietitian-approved menu allows seniors to select an entrée, fruit, and vegetable of their choice, along with bread and low-fat milk.
