(Older Adults Keep Serving)

Making resources, support services, and social interaction available is important to aging adults, so our goal is to direct seniors to those services they need and present activities they enjoy.

OAKS Mission: To provide healthy aging through nutritious meals, beneficial supportive services and social interaction to area seniors.

It is important to stay abreast of all the laws and legislation that affect older Americans, and at The OAKS, we let seniors know what to expect through Dale Beaty, the district's senator for the Silver Haired Legislature.

​​Kennett O.A.K.S.

We are now serving in house, and our seniors are enjoying, not only a great meal each day, but they are also enjoying the various programs  we have to offer from the  walking track to a library.

We are open at Monday-Friday, from 8 a.m.  to 3 p.m. for those who would like to walk the track, check out a book, use the exercise room, or just sit, drink a cup of coffee, and socialize. We start serving lunch at 11 a.m. - 12:30 p.m. and for seniors 60+ we ask for a $4 donation, those 59 and under eating with a senior, the cost is now $6 per plate.


For seniors, good nutrition and exercise are important for healthy aging.  At the Kennett OAKS Nutrition Center, we strive to provide all of our clients with tasty nutritious meals, informative programs, well-being clinics, and fun activities.
