Senior Meals

The purpose of the Walworth County Nutrition Program for Older Adults is to reduce food insecurity, to promote socialization and to promote health and well-being. Good nutrition later in life can help lessen the effects of diseases prevalent among older adults, improve quality of life and sense of well-being, and minimize the risk of getting some diseases. The Walworth County Nutrition Program for Older Adults provides two options: congregate meals (senior dining sites) and home delivered meals. For more information or to register for either program please call (262)741-3333.
