Senior Nutrition

About the Program

Union County’s Senior Nutrition Program (UCSN) provides meals to individuals 60 and over throughout Union County. We do more than provide a nutritious meal, though! We also provide support, education and personal interaction that promotes nutritional, physical and social well-being. We believe our services help sustain health, promote independence and improve the quality of life of those who participate.

There is no cost to participate in any of our nutrition programs and there are no income guidelines. UCSN is funded with a combination of federal, state and county dollars, and voluntary contributions from participants. Participants are under no obligation to contribute; it is entirely voluntary. To apply, complete the online referral form.

Volunteers

Our programs rely on volunteers to help us serve the seniors of Union County. Volunteer opportunities include: delivering meals to homebound clients, helping in the kitchen or putting on activities at any of our congregate meal sites, distribution of nutritional supplements and many more!
