Nutrition Program

1. What is the Nutrition Program?

Aging & In-Home Services’ (AIHS) Nutrition Program is funded by the Older Americans Act (OAA). The Older Americans Act supports congregate and home-delivered meals for people aged 60 and older to address the problems of food insecurity, promote socialization, and promote the health and well-being of older adults through nutrition and nutrition-related services. Services are targeted at persons with the greatest social and economic need, with particular attention to low-income older adults, including low-income minority older persons, older persons with limited English proficiency, older persons residing in rural areas, and those at risk for institutionalization.

Contact the Aging & Disability Resource Center (ADRC) at 260.469.3036 to request an assessment.
