Nutrition Services

The Prince George’s County Senior Nutrition Program’s mission is to promote the meal program, nutrition education, as well as social, recreational, and educational opportunities for older adults.

The Senior Nutrition Program has two components: The Home-Delivered and Congregate Meal programs. Each meal served meets at least one-third of the Recommended Dietary Allowances for older adults and follows the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. The Home-Delivered Meal program provides meals to homebound older adults within the community, with the intent of assisting the resident with remaining in their own home. A hot meal is delivered to the older adult’s door five days a week.

The Congregate Meal program serves hot nutritious meals to seniors in a congregate setting such as senior centers, religious facilities, senior housing and community centers. Congregate program participants may be provided transportation to the local nutrition sites and eligible seniors are able to take part in the lunch program and have access to recreational and educational programs.

To be eligible for the Senior Nutrition Program, an individual must:

  • Be a Prince George’s County resident
  • Be at least 60 years of age, or have a spouse that is 60 year of age and attends Senior Nutrition Program
