The EAT Coalition was created and funded in 2006 by the Indianapolis Retirement Home Fund, a Central Indiana Community Foundation (CICF) Fund, as an initiative to strengthen the senior food provision network in Central Indiana. EAT is a coalition of nonprofit organizations dedicated to ensuring that every Central Indiana senior has access to nutritious meals on a daily basis. The coalition works together to maintain, enhance, and expand a network of providers that meet seniors’ basic food needs with a strong system of senior-serving meal and food providers in Central Indiana.

The EAT Coalition aims to be an integral part of delivering improved nutrition outcomes, therefore enabling seniors in Central Indiana to experience a higher quality of life in the 8-county Indianapolis metropolitan area. Approximately 6,000 seniors are currently served by the 20+ member EAT coalition, which includes CICOA, Meals on Wheels and the Purdue Extension Services-Marion County.
