The Nutrition Program provides nutritious meals to promote healthy aging. Through nutritionally sound meals, education and counseling, information is available for those who are nutritionally-at-risk. Each meal meets one-third of the current daily recommended dietary allowances/dietary reference intakes as established by the Food & Nutrition Board of the National Research Council for the National Academy of Sciences.
Meals are provided to the 60+ person and their spouse in congregate settings at area senior centers. Combining a nutritious meal with friendship, socialization, and recreation reduces isolation for older persons. This same meal is available as a home delivered meal to eligible older persons in designated communities. These reassuring and nutritionally sound services enable them to remain in their own home.
