Nutrition Program


The Genesee County Office for the Aging operates a nutrition program that provides a daily nutritionally balanced hot meal to older persons. Besides promoting health and nutrition, this program is designed to promote opportunities to socialize with others and to improve access to a variety of social and health services.

All meals served provide at least one-third of the current dietary reference intakes as established by the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Science, National Research Council. Some special diets can be accommodated.

Meals are available at five congregate mealsites in the county and through our Home Delivered Meal program. Please see the Menu section of this website for menus for the current and upcoming months.
