Mission Statement

The Senior Nutrition Program provides high quality, cost efficient, nutritious meals to seniors and promotes the role of nutrition in preventative health and long term care. Nutrition education is provided to seniors participating in the Senior Nutrition Program to support this promotional effort. All meals are planned to meet one-third of the daily recommended dietary allowances for adults. The meal plans are approved and monitored by a staff of Registered Dietitians.

Description

The Senior Nutrition Program (SNP) has provided meals to eligible adults 60 years of age and older in Santa Clara County since 1974. The goals of the program are to reduce hunger and food insecurity, increase socialization, and promote the health and well-being of older adults by improving access to nutritious meals and other health and wellness services. A variety of programs offered through the SNP help support older adults aging where they want to age. They include the Congregate Meals Program, Meals on Wheels, Friends from Meals on Wheels, and the Mobility Management program.
