Valley Foods Senior Nutrition Program provides a home-style lunch meal Monday-Friday at various dining sites throughout Lucas County. The senior dining program provides an opportunity to enjoy a good meal with friends in a safe, friendly environment. Nutrition education, socialization and other activities are available at the dinning sites. For those with limited transportation, a TARTA bus pass may be available to travel to and from the dining site. A list of dining sites can be found at http://www.areaofficeonaging.com/aoacong.html.
In addition, a daily (Monday-Friday) hot meal or once a week delivery of frozen meals may be delivered to home-bound individuals 60 years of age or older. The home-delivered meal service provides more than a meal. It also offers the opportunity for personal contact on delivery days with courteous people who care. Each home-delivered and congregate meal provides one-third the daily recommended key nutrients for individuals 60 years of age and over and includes low-sodium and diabetic-friendly options. A suggested donation is requested for the meal. However, all donations are kept confidential and no one is denied a meal for inability to contribute toward the cost of the meal. Donations allow us to serve more meals.
