Jayhawk Area Agency on Aging (JAAA) has several programs available to ensure every Kansas Senior adult has their daily nutritional needs met.

CHAMPSS – Choosing Healthy Appetizing Meal Plan Solutions for Seniors

The program offered through Jayhawk Area Agency on Aging (JAAA) allows seniors age 60 and older to choose from different entrees and eat at their convenience seven days a week at CHAMPSS locations throughout our three-county area. Participants must complete an orientation and submit a registration packet to enroll in the program. Participants are encouraged to make the suggested donation of $3.50 per meal. No one is denied a meal if they are unable to donate. Participants say they enjoy the flexibility offered through this program, as well as the opportunity to be around people of all ages. The CHAMPSS meal program represents the future of senior care, inter-generational and inclusive.

CHAMPSS Meals expire one year after the day they are added to your card

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)

The Food Assistance Program serves as the first line of defense against hunger. It provides crucial support to elderly households, to low-income working households, to other low income households that include the unemployed or disabled and to households transitioning from welfare to work. Food assistance customers can spend their benefits to buy eligible nutritious food and plants and seeds to grow food for their household to eat.


Seniors Farmer’s Market

Program to provide fresh, nutritious, unprepared, locally grown fruits, vegetables, herbs, and honey from farmers’ markets, roadside stands and community supported agriculture programs to low-income seniors via coupons that can be exchanged for eligible foods at farmers’ markets, roadside stands, and community supported agriculture (CSA) programs. For purposes of this program, low-income seniors are generally defined as individuals who are at least 60 years old and who have household incomes of not more than 185% of the Federal poverty income guidelines.
