Please see list below for Food Pantry sites in each community.
The Office for the Aging Nutrition Program includes home delivered meals, community setting meals and nutrition counseling. No accommodations are made for special diets, although salt is not added in cooking and fruit may be substituted for bakery desserts. All meals provide 33% the recommended daily intake of nutrients and are planned by a Registered Dietician. The R.D. also provides information, education and individual counseling for both our congregate and home delivered meals clients.
Qualified persons may receive a hot meal delivered to their homes. Persons are eligible if they are 60 or older, have physical or mental limitations or lack the ability to prepare a meal for themselves.
Noontime meals are also available for persons 60 and over in a friendly group setting at sites throughout the county. Frequent social and educational programs occur at the sites. Reservations may be made at the selected site or by calling Prestige Services at 315-686-4440 the day before you want the meal.
There is a suggested donation of $3.50 for lunch at the congregate sites and for the home delivered meal program. These donations support additional food service to the elderly. While donations are sought, no one will be denied a meal if unable to donate. The guest fee for individuals under the age of 60 is $8.50 per meal at congregate sites. Meals are prepared by a professional catering service and your comments are always welcome!
