19: History The Community Nutrition Network & Senior Services Association was born out of a meal service program operated by the Community Economic & Development Association (CEDA) in the 1970's. CEDA's meal-service program came about shortly after the Older American's Act was enacted in 1965.The program quickly grew, as the need for this service became more visible. In 1986 CEDA decided to create the Community Nutrition Network & Senior Services Association as a separate organization. The Area Agency on Aging (AAA) allocated funds to and approved Community Nutrition Network & Senior Services Association as a for-profit organization. Community Nutrition Network & Senior Services Association contracted with Preferred Meal Systems as the main meal provider, which still provides the meals today.
