A registered dietitian creates monthly menu plans specifically designed to strengthen and support senior health, and promote vitality and well-being. These nutritious meals are prepared at our centrally located facility for our Meals on Wheels program, the Cathedral Café at Cathedral Residences and CathedralCare.
Aging True staff and volunteers travel nearly 300 miles a day to deliver over 800 meals to home bound seniors and disabled residents in Duval County. On average, we deliver nearly 300,000 hot and frozen meals to frail, homebound senior and disabled residents each year, and that number continues to grow.
Delivered daily, this nutritional support promotes senior health, vitality and independence. In addition, the daily interaction between our drivers and meal recipients allows for ongoing evaluation of each client’s changing needs. Meals on Wheels drivers and staff routinely connect our clients to a wide variety of additional resources.
Aging True is a proud member of Meals on Wheels America.
