Senior Nutrition Program
Oneida County Senior Nutrition Program offers home delivered meals, congregate dining and nutrition counseling. Both Home Delivered Meal and Congregate Meal programs provide good tasting, well balanced meals which provide 1/3 the Recommended Daily Allowances for adults as established by the American Dietetic Association.
Home Delivered Meals
This program targets frail, homebound individuals, age 60 and older and is available at a suggested donation of $2.75 per meal. Donations are voluntary and confidential, and no one will be denied a meal for inability to contribute. Hot noon meals are delivered Monday through Friday along with shelf stable meals for weekends and holidays.
Delivery of meals also serves as a daily monitoring system to check on each person's well being. No meal is left unless contact is made with the participant. In the event that a person is found not to be well, or in an emergency situation the driver reports back to his or her supervisor who then notifies the Office for Aging for follow-up and any necessary action.
