The NRCNA hosted a day-long online and in-person convening focused on helping the network of community-based senior nutrition programs understand best practices, current challenges and emerging opportunities in the provision of medically tailored meals targeted at older adults. Attendees discussed and developed a vision for the future of specialized meal services, networked with peers from across the country, identified needed training
tools and resources, and articulated a plan of action to inspire and guide continued efforts in the provision of targeted meal services for chronically ill older adults. On this page, we have archived the presentations given at this event as well as key resources to support continued action by community-based senior nutrition programs seeking to offer meals that address both the nutritional and medical needs of older adults.
For older Americans coping with chronic illness, part of the prescription for health just might be the right nutritious meal, tailored to special medical needs, delivered to one’s doorstep.
