The Greene County Department of Human Services Nutrition Program allows seniors to remain independent in their homes while maintaining good nutrition. Home Delivered Meals are provided to those unable to prepare meals for themselves. Volunteers deliver these meals Monday through Friday (except holidays) throughout Greene County. This program provides seniors the opportunity to improve and/or maintain their nutrition, health status, and quality of life while remaining in their home.
Each senior service center serves a noon-time meal consisting of a hot entree, vegetable and fruit,
bread and butter, low fat milk and a dessert. Substitutions are available for those on diabetic or low-salt diets.
The Nutrition Education Program provides a registered dietitian who does nutritional education on a one-on-one counseling level if needed by clients.
