A Few Words

About Us

Shasta Senior Nutrition Program (SSNP) is a private non-profit agency formed in 1979. We assist seniors and individuals to independence by providing opportunities for them to receive services and participate in activities that will enhance their dignity and encourage their continued involvement in the community.

Honors awarded to SSNP include the NANASP “Golden Apple Award” in 1989 for outstanding Meals on Wheels practices and procedures, the ANPP “Outstanding Non-profit Organization Award” in 1997, and the NANASP “Golden Apple Award” in 1999 for community partnering and senior services provided.

The Mercy Oaks campus is the home of SSNP’s main facility and administration. Our 25,900 square foot facility offers seniors a safe serene environment for dining and recreation.
