Well-Balanced Mid-Day Meal
The Nutrition Program provides a well-balanced midday meal to Gloucester County seniors who are age 60+. The midday meal is served Monday through Friday at the Nutrition Sites listed. In addition to a meal, the sites also foster social interaction, and offer recreational and leisure activities as well as providing access to other supportive services available to Gloucester County senior citizens. Meals are planned by a nutritionist to ensure the recommended nutrients.
A donation of $1.25 is accepted for each meal, however, this is purely voluntary and there is no obligation to contribute. Privacy and confidentiality with respect to contributions are guaranteed. All collected contributions will be used to expand the services and supplement funds received under the Older Americans Act.

Serv-a-Tray is a home-delivered meal program designed to maintain health through proper nutrition and enable homebound seniors to remain in the community with independence and dignity. To be eligible, persons must be age 60 or older; homebound; unable to shop or prepare their own meals; have no one to assist with meals; and be on a regular diet. A complete midday meal is delivered to participants Monday through Friday and frozen meals are available for the weekends.
Would you like to give back to the community? Volunteer at Gloucester County Senior Services! Volunteers are needed in the kitchens to prepare Serv-A-Tray luncheons and serve at the Nutrition Sites. We also need volunteer drivers for the Serv-A-Tray program. View the Volunteer Application (PDF).
