Subject/Title: Report and update on the long-term plan by Contra Costa County that provides for funding and operation of the County Senior Nutrition Program (Co Co Café).

Prepared by: Poldina Scherff, Recreation Services Manager

Submitted by: Craig D. Bronzan, Director of Parks and Recreation

Consider report and update from Contra Costa County as it relates to the County Senior Nutrition Program (Co Co Café) in the Brentwood Community Center.

On June 11, 2002, City Council authorized the City Manager to enter into an agreement with Contra Costa County to provide a Senior Nutrition Program at the Community Center.

On August 24, 2004, City Council approved a one-year grant to the County program of $19,000 for the Café Manager position, to help the program through the fiscal year 04/05.

As a result of City Council action on August 24, 2004, representatives of the Contra Costa County Senior Nutrition Program were requested to return to City Council in February 2005 to give an update on the program and outline long-term funding strategies for the program. Contra Costa County’s Health Services Department has been running a Senior Nutrition Congregate Program called “Co Co Café” at the Brentwood Community Center since July 1, 2002. The County Senior Nutrition Program is designed as a partnership between cities and the County in providing nutrition services to senior citizen residents in each community. Since opening, Co Co Café has served 6,547 seniors in fiscal year 2002/03 and 8,440 seniors in fiscal year 2003/04, and 3,800 to date for fiscal year 2004/05.

A. Paul Kraintz, Senior Nutrition Director with Contra Costa Health Services will be in attendance at the Council Meeting to give a report and update as per Council’s request (see attached materials).

Contra Costa Health Services request is as follows: $17,900 for 2005-06, $18,300 for 2006-07, and continued in-kind use of the Brentwood Community Center Blue Room for both fiscal years. Staff will include these requests as a part of the 2005/07 General Operating Budget process for City Council consideration.
