The purpose of the program is to provide a nutritious meal to persons age 60 or older, and their spouses of any age, and to provide socialization to reduce isolation. The program consists of hot and frozen congregate and home-delivered meals, and is funded through a combination of federal, state and local funding sources. Income is not considered.

In addition to a noon meal and socialization, programs and activities are planned such as structured fitness and exercise classes; day trips and outings to local points of interest; educational programming; fun and games; computer classes; music and dance; language classes; arts and crafts; among other creative programs. Those interested in the Nutrition Program must be approved. Transportation to Congregate Meal Sites is available upon approval for those who cannot drive. To learn more about the program and approval process, please reach out to us at 864.242.9733 or 1.800.434.4036

Contributions are accepted toward the cost of the meal, which are put back into the program to purchase additional meals. Centers normally operate Monday through Friday, 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m. The programs are located in such places as senior centers, churches, and community and recreation centers.
