congregate & home delivered meals
Blue Rivers Area Agency on Aging directly administers 15 Senior Centers in communities within our 8 county service area. There are also 2 communities that do not have a Senior Center, but home delivered meals are provided. Four additional communities have Senior Centers that are operated by other organizations but receive funding through Blue Rivers AAA. Each noon meal is prepared to meet 1/3 of the daily recommended dietary needs of older adults. A suggested contribution is solicited to help defray the cost of the meal.
To arrange for Nutrition Services, please call the Senior Center manager at your desired location. Reserving a meal at least a day in advance is required. All locations are open five days a week.
- Congregate Meals Served at Senior Centers
Senior Centers prepare a meal that is generally served at noon. Occasional evening meals are planned. Along with the meal, a Senior Center offers a place to meet and socialize with friends and participate in other activities.
- Home Delivered Meals
Arrangements can be made to deliver a meal to elderly who cannot attend a Senior Center. This service is intended for individuals with limited physical or emotional capacities, which restrict them from attending. Alternatives may exist for individuals living in communities where there is not a home delivered meal program.
