    For the first time, Connections will serve evening meals in Sioux City. The meals will be available on Tuesdays and Wednesdays at the Siouxland Center for Active Generations, 313 Cook St. Meals will be served from 4-5 p.m. The menu will be the same as noon meals at other senior center/congregate meal sites.
    Noon meals have expanded from three days/week to five days/week, Monday-Friday at the Sergeant Bluff Senior Center. Lunch is served at 11:30. Reservations can be made at the Senior Center, or by calling Connections Area Agency on Aging by 11 am on the business day prior.
    Senior congregate meals are open to any senior age 60 or older on a donation basis. The suggested donation for a meal is $3.50-6.50. Those under age 60 can also be served but must pay the full price of $6.50. Menus are available at each site or at www.connectionsaaa.org/healthyliving. Meals are well-balanced, nutritious, and delicious. Reservations are required and can be made by 11 am on the business day prior.

  • Connections is excited to partner with Jumpy Monkey Coffee to sell several varieties of coffee during the month of November. Coffee sales through Connections will benefit senior programs. Coffee can be purchased on-line at our website (click on title to link to the e-commerce page) or at our Council Bluffs and Sioux City offices.

    Jumpy Monkey Coffee is blended and packaged by persons with varying abilities, so your purchase brings a great cup of coffee to you, supports our programs and brings employment to persons with disabilities - a "Win-Win-Win!"

    Varieties include: Celebrate Connections (a unique blend only available though this fundraiser), Cinnamon Sticky Bun, Highlander Grog, Pumpkin Harvest, Jingle Joe, and Good Morning Blend. For the non-coffee drinker, a Omanhene Hot Cocoa option is also available.
