Senior Nutrition Program
The Senior Nutrition Program provides hot, nutritious meals to senior citizens. Program service settings include congregate and home delivered meals, depending upon the individuals need. While the main goal of the nutrition program is to feed seniors, the program provides elderly residents with much more than just meals, congregate meal sites give participating seniors the opportunity to socialize with others, while the Meals on Wheels program delivers meals to the frail, sick and homebound seniors. For many congregate and home delivered meal clients, the nutrition program not only provides a meal but also friends.
