Meals in a Group Setting

The Senior Nutrition Program provides a nutritious meal to persons age 60+ and/or the spouse of someone 60+ through Congregate Sites.

 

A nutritious meal is made available to individuals, 60 years of age and older, whose health enables them to come to a designated site. A registered dietician plans the meal served. The meal pattern consists of: Meat/Meat alternate, Vegetables & Fruits ½ cup servings, Bread or Alternate, ½ pint Milk, Dessert, and Margarine. The meal meets 1/3 of the Recommended Dietary Allowance for their age group. The Congregate Program also offers socialization with their peers as well as activities. Whenever possible, nutrition sites are located in the Senior Centers. Transportation is available to the sites if needed.
