Programs to Help You Eat Nutritiously and Affordably
Good nutrition is critical to supporting independent and healthy aging. Many barriers can keep older adults from maintaining good nutrition, including lack of financial resources, poor transportation options, limited mobility, declining physical and mental health, and social isolation.
FTAAAD nutrition programs provide meals, socialization, and nutrition education and counseling to adults age 60 and over. These services are provided in 15 congregate settings (such as senior centers or select senior housing), as well as to homebound older adults in all eight Northeast Tennessee counties.
