Congregate Meals Program

What is the Congregate Meals Program?

Congregate Nutrition Services, established in 1972 and Home-Delivered Nutrition Services, established in 1978, provide meals and related nutrition services to older individuals in a variety of settings including congregate facilities such as senior centers; or by home-delivery to older individuals who are homebound due to illness, disability, or geographic isolation. Services are targeted to those in greatest social and economic need with particular attention to low income individuals, minority individuals, those in rural communities, those with limited English proficiency and those at risk of institutional care. Nutrition Services Programs help older individuals to remain independent and in their communities.

Grants for Congregate Nutrition Services and Home-Delivered Nutrition Services are allocated to States and Territories by a formula based on their share of the population aged 60 and over. Havelock has received some of this grant money to provide this service to our Seniors Citizens.

The congregate meal program provides at least one meal per day at our Senior Center. The congregate setting provides opportunities for socialization and companionship. It also offers programs related to nutrition education, exercise activities, health promotion and disease prevention. Don’t be surprised if you get invited to participate in a Wii bowling tourneyment or Bingo after lunch!
