Seniors & Low Income Resources
NICAA Golden Meals: www.nwilaaa.org
When older adults cannot leave their homes and cannot personally prepare nutritious meals, home delivered meals are an available option. Volunteers who deliver meals to homebound older persons have an important opportunity to check on the welfare of the homebound elderly and are encouraged to report any health or other problems that they may observe during their visits.
Meals served under the Nutrition Program must provide at least one-third of the daily recommended dietary allowances established by the Food and Nutrition Board of the National Academy of Sciences-National Research Council.
The Nutrition Program also provides a range of related services including nutrition screening, assessment, education and counseling.
