Congregate Nutrition

The congregate nutrition program provides a nutritious lunch to older adults in each of the fourteen counties. There are 17 congregate meal sites throughout the Upper Cumberland co-located at the senior centers. The goals of the Congregate Nutrition Program are to:

  • Promote, maintain and improve the health and well-being of eligible consumers aged 60 years and older, and adults with disabilities through the provision of nutritious meals and opportunities for social contact.
  • Reduce nutritional risk among consumers through the provision of nutritious meals, nutrition screening, and nutrition counseling, based on the needs of consumers.
  • Reduce social isolation experienced by many older persons and adults with disabilities through participation in a variety of social and nutrition service activities.
  • Provide planned nutrition education and supportive nutrition service activities in the congregate and home-delivered meals programs in order to enhance the consumer’s ability to remain independent.
  • Link eligible consumers to available community services.
  • Reduce hunger and food insecurity.
  • Promote the health and well-being of older individuals by increasing access to nutrition and other disease prevention and health promotion services in order to delay the onset of adverse health conditions resulting from poor nutritional health and sedentary behavior.
