These services help maintain the health of eligible participants by serving meals in the person’s home (home-delivered meals) or at congregate sites. Congregate and home-delivered meals are nutritionally balanced, and contain at least one-third of the current recommended dietary allowances as established by the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Research Council. Eligible participants for this program also have access to nutrition education and counseling.
Congregate meals are provided in senior citizen centers, churches, community centers and other facilities throughout the Greater Nashville region. In addition to a nutritious meal, this program offers participants an opportunity for socialization and participation in program activities.
Home-delivered meals are delivered to the eligible participant’s home and assist them in remaining independent in their own home.
