Proper nutrition is essential to health and wellbeing. Aging & Independence Services and community partners are working closely to ensure that older adults have their nutrition needs met during this difficult time.
Older adults are encouraged to access food through commercial sources, if they have the means to do so. Many stores and companies are providing delivery services. A list of commercial providers can be found here.
Aging & Independence Services contracts with community organizations to provide meals at various locations throughout the county. Generally, these nutrition sites offer sit down "congregate" meal services, but PLEASE NOTE: nutrition sites have temporarily closed all congregate indoor dining to prevent spread of COVID-19. Nutrition sites are now providing pick-up meals for older adults 60 and over. Some of the sites are providing home delivery. A list of meal providers can be found here.
