For seniors, the benefits of healthy eating include increased mental acuity, resistance to illness and disease, higher energy levels, a more robust immune system, faster recuperation times, and better management of chronic health problems. As we age, eating well can also be the key to a positive outlook and staying emotionally balanced.

To assist our constituents with their nutritional needs, congregate and home-delivered meals are provided at 21 different meal sites across the South Central Tennessee Development District, along with nutrition education programs and other supportive services.  Each meal provides one third of the Required Dietary Allowance and, although no one is denied a meal for inability to pay, contributions are encouraged.

The congregate meal program provides one meal per day at senior centers and other locations. The congregate setting provides opportunities for socialization and companionship. It also offers programs related to nutrition education, exercise activities, health promotion and disease prevention. Some programs also offer meals on weekends. Transportation is available for those who have trouble getting around on their own.
