Providing OAA Congregate Meals


Friendship (Congregate) Meals

Congregate meals (Friendship Meals) are provided in group settings at neighborhood senior centers, community centers, etc. Congregate meals offer an opportunity for people to enjoy a well-balanced, nutritious meal in the company of others. Generally, these meals are provided at noontime.


The program not only promotes better health in seniors through improved nutrition, but also reduces the isolation of old age, thereby improving the quality of life in their later years.

Many social and recreational activities are offered along with the meals. The congregate sites allow the opportunity for information and social interaction between the participants. The congregate meals provide a setting that is conducive to the development of good nutritional habits for our participants. Many times the meal consumed at our sites is the only nutritional meal that the participant will receive that day.
