Nutrition services can help to address a number of problems many elders face, including poor diet, health problems, food insecurity, and loneliness. Because these services are so essential, DFTA's Nutrition Services Unit works closely with contracted providers of congregate and home-delivered meals to ensure both nutrition quality and customer satisfaction. Below are resources that can be used by DFTA meal providers.
