AGING SERVICES: Elderly Nutrition Program

Elderly Nutrition Program

     There are 13 Elderly Nutrition Projects funded by the Aging Services Division in Connecticut. They serve individuals 60 years of age and over and their spouses nutritionally balanced meals. (Meals may also be provided to persons with disabilities living in senior housing facilities that have Senior Community Cafés.) Meals are delivered to homebound or otherwise isolated older persons.  Often evening and/or weekend meals are served, especially to homebound clients. Congregate and homebound meals are available free of charge to eligible participants, although donations are encouraged and used to provide additional meals.

     To be eligible, participants must be 60 years of age or older, or be a spouse of a participant.  To qualify for home delivered meals, persons over 60 must meet eligibility criteria through an assessment.  Emphasis is given to serving those in greatest economic or social need.

     Go to Senior Community Cafés to contact the Elderly Nutrition Project nearest you.
