Home Delivered Meals
PLEASE NOTE: We are still accepting referrals for our Home Delivered Meals Program. A few of our delivery routes have a waiting list. Due to COVID-19 risks, required initial and yearly assessments are being completed by phone only.
Our Senior Nutrition Program delivers low cost, hot and nutritionally sound weekday meals to those Cayuga County residents who cannot come to the meal sites. This service helps the Seniors of Cayuga County to stay in their own homes.
Meals have no extra salt added.
No free sweets diabetic diets can be accommodated, also. This program promotes better health through improved nutrition.
For information on the program and to register, call the Office for the Aging Senior Nutrition Program at 315-253-1550. An assessment by one of our staff is required for all home delivered meal recipients to determine eligibility. Recipients must need assistance in 1 or more Activities of Daily Living in order to qualify.
Meal recipients are asked to make a contribution to help defray the costs of the meals. Contributions are important to us as they allow this needed service to continue. For those persons of 60 years or older, there is a suggested contribution of $3.50 for each meal, but no one is denied a meal because of their inability to contribute. Home delivered meal recipients are able to send contributions monthly. We accept CASH, SNAP, CHECK, or CREDIT
