Nutrition Services

Nutrition Services provides hot meals to seniors 60+ years old and their spouses (regardless of the spouse's age).  This service is provided Monday through Friday throughout the year, excluding holidays.  The daily hot meals meet one-third of the nutritional requirements for an older individual.  There is no charge for these meals, although seniors are encouraged to contribute toward the cost of the meal according to their own capacity.  Eligibility to participate in one of these two hot meal programs is based largely on a senior's need.

 

The nutrition department utilizes the services of a licensed Nutritionist/Dietician (State of LA).

 

Jefferson Council on Aging is fortunate to have the supplemental funding from community minded partner who donated to our Senior Meals Program.

We recognize the generosity of

Peoples Health,

Walmart Foundation,

Pratt Stanton Manor,

plus many individual donors who extended our reach to many seniors in need.

Thank you for nourishing our seniors!!
