Dakota Senior Meals on Wheels
DSM program came to North Sioux in July 2000. The Dakota Senior Meals is a non-profit nutrition program that has been serving 11 counties in south central and south eastern South Dakota for over 30 years. It is a service provided by the Rural Office of Community Services, Inc. (ROCS).
The program provides a nutritious noon meal five days a week at a nutrition site. Home delivery is also available for those who are unable to leave their homes. Well balanced, flavorful and nutritious meals are prepared and served on-site weekly at noon.
