Nutrition & Wellness
LifeSpan Resources provides a hot mid-day meal Monday through Friday to senior citizens at nutrition sites in each county and weekly frozen meal delivery to the home bound. Reservations for hot meals should be made 24 hours ahead by calling the Nutrition Site.
Homebound Frozen Meals
Neighborhood Meal Sites
A variety of health services and wellness programs offered in the community.
Meals are prepared by Masterson’s Catering in Louisville, Kentucky, and carefully planned by a Registered Dietitian to meet 1/3 of the recommended daily allowances established by the Dietary Guidelines for Americans. Meals are planned to ensure low salt, fat and sugar. A typical meal will consist of meat, vegetable, low-sugar dessert, soft whole grain bread and 1% milk. The current Hot Meal menu (served at our Congregate Meal Sites) can be viewed by clicking on the link above.
Homebound Meal choices include Regular, Diabetic, Soft Foods and Breakfast boxes. Deliveries are made weekly; boxes include 7 complete meals. Holidays and weekend meal needs are met with the weekly delivery.
We appreciate a donation toward the meal. The suggested donation is $2.50 per meal. Envelopes are provided with the homebound meals and participants can choose to donate daily, weekly or monthly. Each Nutrition Site has a donation box and envelopes for your giving convenience. Donations can remain anonymous.
Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program
The Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program (SFMNP) provides fresh locally grown fruits and vegetables to senior participants age 60+ who meet eligibility criteria. Eligible seniors receive coupon vouchers valued at $20 to purchase produce at a locally-approved farmers market or farm stand (processed foods and baked goods are not allowed). LifeSpan will hold voucher distributions at multiple locations in June.
Important: Make sure the farmers market or stand you choose takes the vouchers. A display sign should indicate: FARMERS MARKET CHECKS ACCEPTED HERE. If in doubt, ASK. Checks are accepted June – October 15. Be sure to sign your check. No cash, change, refunds or credits will be given. Sales tax is not charged.
