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.
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.
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.”
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.
