The Nutrition Program was developed to provide nutritious meals that meet 1/3 of the daily recommended Dietary Allowances as specified by Federal Regulations. Meals are provided on a regular basis to those individuals age 60 and older who are in the greatest economic, physical and social need. In order to serve those in the greatest need, an eligibility survey was established that allow the agency staff to determine the client's need by a point system.
