The goal of the Senior Nutrition program is to provide persons aged 60 and over a hot, nutritious noon time meal in a group setting or delivered to their homes. We strive to improve the quality of life for the elderly by providing personal contact and socialization for the seniors in our communities.
The counties served include the following: Bedford, Coffee, Franklin, Giles, Hickman, Lawrence, Lewis, Lincoln, Marshall, Maury, Moore, Perry and Wayne.
Please refer to the map or list below for a complete list of our meal sites. For more information on how to apply for assistance, contact Lea Richardson at the number provided below.

Congregate noon meals are provided at Senior Citizens Centers or other designated locations in all 13 South Central counties. Anyone aged 60 or older is eligible to receive a meal at the congregate sites. In order to assure a meal, reservations must be made the day prior. Nutrition education is provided monthly to the congregate participants and to the home delivered consumers, keeping seniors abreast of updates in the area of nutritional needs.
