Senior Nutrition Program
Programs Providing Meal Services
The Senior Nutrition Program provides nutritional lunchtime meals to active senior citizens at Congregate Meal Sites and delivers to homebound seniors through the Meals on Wheels Program, throughout the Louisville Metro area. These programs help to improve the lives of older adults by supporting good nutritional health and promoting their independence and well-being.
Congregate and Group Nutrition Sites offer an opportunity for seniors age 60 and older to come to up to 16 neighborhood locations for a nutritious lunch, socialization and activities. Most sites are open from 9am to 1pm Monday through Friday. Please review the current Open Senior Congregate Sites, hours, locations here.
Home delivered meals (Meals on Wheels) are delivered to the homebound elderly from the various nutrition sites. Meals are provided to qualified individuals, age sixty or older, who are homebound due to illness. A staff member conducts an in-home visit to make this assessment. A waiting list is maintained to accommodate the ever-growing need in this community. Those in the greatest physical, social/economic need are given priority as a vacancy becomes available.

The Senior Nutrition Program is federally funded by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services through a contract with the Kentuckiana Regional Planning and Development Agency (KIPDA). Other sources of funding include Louisville/Jefferson County Metro Government and private donations.
