Congregate and Home Delivered Meal Programs

One cannot live on bread alone.

Everyone knows how important a healthy diet is.  It keeps you feeling and looking great.  And just as important is a full and active life. That’s why Dining Senior Style combines good food with fun activities.  There is more than you would expect waiting for you at your local senior center. 

If you would like to invest in a community service that provides a helping hand to older Americans who are making every effort to maintain an independent way of life to the best of their ability, please consider a tax deductible financial gift or a gift of your time to the Congregate and Home Delivered Meals Program.

Your gift will go a long way in serving our area’s senior citizens.

WHAT IS “HOME DELIVERED MEALS PROGRAM”?

The home delivered meals program is designed to assist homebound seniors with their dietary needs.

Over 75,000 meals were delivered to eligible homebound participants last year.

Each and every meal is a blend of good taste and balanced nutrition and is delivered to the homes of seniors who are not able to attend Congregate Meal Sites.

The Home Delivered Meal Program provides meals for seven days a week.
