Nutrition Program Header

The Nutrition Program provides a nutritionally balanced, hot, noon meal to seniors age 60 and older and eligible persons with disabilities under age 60, Monday through Friday, at congregate mealsites throughout the area, or delivered to their homes. Weekend and evening meals are also provided for those who need them. A voluntary and confidential donation is requested.

The Nutrition Program needs your help to reduce the number of meals not being delivered due to late meal cancellations and missed meals. By following the steps below, you can help conserve funding dollars so more consumers can be served.

Home Delivered Meals are brought to the homes of homebound elders and persons with disabilities by trained drivers. Often, the meal driver is the only person the individual sees on a regular basis. Drivers help to communicate the persons' needs for additional service to the WestMass ElderCare staff.
