Home Delivered Meals

home-meal-deliveryThe Nutrition Program has two components: Home Delivered Meals and Congregate Meals. BCCOA operates both programs in Benzie County and both programs provide nutritionally balanced meals to individuals 60 and older. The costs for the meals are a suggested $3.00 donation.

Our meals meet the daily recommended dietary intake allowances established by the Food and Nutrition Board of the Institute of Medicine of the National Academy of Sciences. Our monthly menus are reviewed by a Registered Dietician with Area Agency on Aging.

The Home Delivered Meals program is for seniors 60 and older and who are unable to prepare their own meals. This might be because of a recent surgery or a chronic illness. Our meals are delivered Monday through Friday by volunteers on four separate routes throughout Benzie County. Depending on each client’s needs, the meals consist of a hot meal for lunch, cold meal for re-heating at the client’s convenience, and frozen meals for weekends and holidays. Breakfast bags are also available at the client’s requests and/or during the assessment process. Each client is assessed at the time of a referral and then every six months thereafter.

I'm not able to cook or operate the stove/microwave. Home Delivered Meals is a Godsend and will allow me to stay in my home. I really appreciate your support and all the volunteers hard work. Thank you so much!

When the snow on my driveway was too deep to drive a car up, the volunteer would walk up and deliver the meal to my door. Those volunteers are some of earth’s angels.
