The program provides healthy meals and related nutrition services in congregate settings as well as in the home, which help promote and maintain individuals’ nutritional health. In addition to serving healthy meals, the program presents opportunities for social engagement as well as formal information on healthy aging, all of which contribute to an older individual’s overall well-being. To register for any meal program, please call 772-336-8608 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org
Congregate Dining provides hot and nutritious midday meals at three conveniently located sites across St. Lucie County. Instead of dining alone, individuals can enjoy well-balanced meals in the company of their peers. As an added support, the latest nutritional news is distributed to all congregate sites.
Individuals who are 60 and older are welcome to participate at any one of our congregate sites with prior registration. In some cases, caregivers, spouses and individuals with disabilities under the age of 60 may qualify.
MEALS ON WHEELS
