Home Delivered Meals

The “Home Delivered Meals” Program provides a daily check on your well-being both nutritionally and physically. Our drivers and staff watch for problems a home-bound person may be having and can refer them to the appropriate agency.

You get a break from restaurant prices. Each participant makes a confidential contribution. The suggested contribution is $3.00 per meal and may be made with cash, personal check or food stamp voucher. All contributions are greatly appreciated and are used to directly support the program. No one will be denied a meal for inability to pay.

Meals are one-third of the recommended daily allowance of nutrients and are approved by a Registered Dietitian.

For more information Call the "Nutrition Program for the Elderly" at 561-8320!

SCSEP PROGRAM  

 The SCSEP program (Senior Community Service Employment Program) employs low-income individuals 55 years of age and over to do community service jobs while training for unsubsidized employment.  Many not-for-profit agencies in the area participate as host agencies in order to train SCSEP enrollees in the skills necessary to compete in today's job market.  Enrollees are paid minimum wage to train at these host agencies for up to twenty hours a week and are required to complete various job searches and interview activities as requested by the Program Coordinator.  Contact Erin Keefe at 563-6180 for more information on this program.
