The Nutrition Program operates through seven "Fellowship Centers" located throughout Bay County. Hot, nutritious meals are served five days a week to persons age 60 and over who enjoy fellowship and being with other people. Programs at each center provide exercise, games, recreation, and education. Speakers from the community give nutrition education and information about services and programs available for senior adults.
More than 500 Senior adults attend the Fellowship Centers each year.
More than 41,000 meals are served in the centers.

Meals On Wheels
Meals on Wheels are delivered each day to home bound, elderly clients, age 60 and older, who are confined for health reasons and are unable to prepare meals. Depending on the clients location, either frozen meals or hot meals are delivered once a week or 5 days a week by dedicated and caring volunteers.
The volunteers who deliver meals often provide the only contact with these home bound senior adults. It serves as a daily check with the senior adults to ensure that everything is okay.
All meals are approved by a registered dietitian and meet one third of the recommended daily allowance for a senior adult. While there is not a set fee for the meals, donations are encouraged and help to fund this program.
Anyone can make a referral for the Meals on Wheels program. Once a referral is made, a home visit will be made with the senior adult to determine if they are eligible for the program.
More than 500 home bound senior adults receive Meals on Wheels annually. Over 70,000 hot and nutritious meals are served to these home bound senior adults annually.
To make a referral or for more information, please contact Janice Jorgensen or Hope Stewart at (850)769-3468.
