Nutrition Program

Please be advised that due to Coronavirus/COVID 19 all nutrition sites are closed to the public until further notice. 


Three Sites

Mantua Community Center, Thorofare Firehall, and Pfeiffer Center are preparing take-out meals for pick up by seniors. You must call 856-686-8327 the day before to reserve a take-out meal. Home delivered meals continue as usual for those seniors.

Well-Balanced Mid-Day Meal

The Nutrition Program provides a well-balanced mid-day meal to seniors who are 60 or older or the spouse of a participant. The mid-day 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.

Donation

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 Program

Serv-a-Tray is our 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.

Volunteers

Would you like to give back to the community? Volunteer at Gloucester County Senior Services! We are in need of volunteers at our Thorofare Fire Hall, Jericho First Baptist Church, and Glassboro Senior Center locations. 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.
