Wolf Administration Speaks at The Nutrition Group’s Summer Seminar

State College, PA – Today, Pennsylvania Department of Aging Secretary Teresa Osborne attended The Nutrition Group’s Summer Seminar to speak to senior center managers, kitchen managers, and management from The Nutrition Group about the importance of seniors having access to nutritional meals and maintaining healthy lifestyles.

By partnering with local Area Agencies on Aging in 35 counties throughout Pennsylvania, The Nutrition Group has provided meals to seniors in both senior center and home delivery settings. Established in 1975, they have grown from a small company providing meals for summer camps and senior congregate dining programs to preparing nearly half-a-million meals a day for a variety of audiences for Pennsylvanians across the lifespan. In its last fiscal year, The Nutrition Group served an estimated 3.5 million meals to Pennsylvania seniors.

The Nutrition Group’s understanding of federal and state nutrition services guidelines has enabled them to become a valuable partner to the aging network as we strive to uphold our responsibilities under the Older Americans Act,” said Secretary Osborne. “Moreover, The Nutrition Group’s commitment to provide quality nutrition services supports the Wolf Administration’s efforts to ensure that older Pennsylvanians have access to long-term care services and supports so that they can live and age healthy and well in their homes and communities.”

In addition to meal delivery options for seniors, The Nutrition Group provides senior center management to provide programming such as nutrition education, health and wellness programs, and host social activities to keep residents engaged.
