Wisconsin's Elderly Nutrition Program

ADDITIONAL FOOD, MEALS AND NUTRITION INFORMATION

EAT WITH A GROUP

Call your County or Tribal Aging Office to find out the locations in your community where you can join other seniors for a nutritious meal served in a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Newcomers are welcome.

Call to learn how to volunteer with the meal program as well. Special diets are provided upon medical recommendation. Donations are encouraged.

RECEIVE A MEAL AT HOME

This program is for people age 60 or older who are homebound due to health reasons, and physically or emotionally unable to travel for a meal with others. It is for those who are unable to obtain food and prepare nutritious meals for themselves on a daily basis. Meals are delivered by sensitive, caring persons, many of them volunteers, who are concerned with the well-being of each participant.

Call the County or Tribal Aging Office to apply. The home-delivered meal program coordinator will make a home visit to explain how the program works and to determine eligibility.
