Archuleta Seniors Inc. (ASI) is pleased to announce the following updates and opportunities:

Nutrition program

• We welcome Jillian Lucero as our new executive chef. She is working with our center coordinator, Cheryl Wilkinson, to make sure that our nutrition programs are serving enjoyable, high-quality meals and snacks for our 60 and better consumers and the community as a whole.

• We are providing drive-thru pickup options, as well as county bus delivery for congregate meals while the Community Café is closed. A COVID-related grant allowed us to purchase additional hot boxes, which allowed us to collaborate with the county for deliveries.

• We are very grateful to the county for making this option possible, as there are many consumers who cannot travel during the pandemic and the winter season for meal pickup.

• We are, as always, delivering Meals on Wheels.

New programming: online and telephone access
