NUTRITION

Aiken Senior Life Services, in partnership with Meals on Wheels America, provides a hot, nutritious meal to any senior who is unable to leave their home or who has difficulty preparing a meal. Each meal meets the 1/3 recommended dietary allowance set by the FDA.

Group Dining+

Monday - Friday

9:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Group Dining+ service is available to any senior able to attend an ASLS location for a congregate meal. This service encourages seniors to interact with one another in a relaxed setting. Seniors have the opportunity to create friendships while enjoying guest speakers, crafts, stimulating games, fun exercises, or educational opportunities in addition to their hot meal.

 

In order to get enrolled in the congregate meal program and eat at a meal site regularly, contact the Lower Savannah Council of Governments to get started. If you wish to visit and attend congregate dining as a guest, we require that you call by 11am the day prior in order to reserve your meal. All diners must be at least 60 years of age or older to participate. 

Home Delivered Meals

Monday - Friday

10:00 am - 1:00 pm

The Home Delivered Meal program provides a hot, nutritious meal to any senior who is unable to leave their home or who has difficulty preparing a meal. These meals are delivered by volunteers that provide important social interaction to the homebound seniors. These visits, which serve as an important “wellness check,” often turn into lasting friendships.

In order to get enrolled in the home delivered meals program, contact the Lower Savannah Council of Governments to get started. If you wish to enroll in a private pay meal subscription please contact Nutrition Director Hanna Stone to get started.

Meal Sites 

Our meal sites serve as hubs for both meal delivery and Group Dining. Each of our five meal sites provide different enrichment activities each day to keep the congregates active and involved! Meals are $6.50 per person with private pay, and need to be reserved by 11am the day prior to dining.

These services are vital to our community.  Certainly, it gives our seniors a well-balanced meal. But it’s not just about a meal.  It’s about personal connections, mental stimulation, and social interaction. These are elements that are essential in keeping older adults fit and vibrant cognitively.
