This service provides daily meals to seniors (age 60 and over) who are unable to prepare their own or have no one else available to provide the meal. The meals are prepared at one of 7 Adult Centers in Franklin County, and delivered to the senior’s home by volunteers or staff. They can provide up to 2 meals per day (hot dinner and cold supper and cold lunch and frozen supper for weekends).
Upon receiving a request for home delivered meals, a Case Manager will complete an in-home assessment. This will determine the individual’s need for the service, and details about number of meals and special dietary requirements. A registered dietitian is available through the Office for the Aging to assist in planning for special needs.
While there is no charge for the meals, donations are encouraged. The suggested donation is $2.00 per meal, but no person will be denied a meal if they are unable to pay. Donations are treated in a confidential manner.
The Office for the Aging contracts with the Association of Senior Citizens to provide this home delivered meal service.
