Senior Dining Programs

The Sheboygan County Senior Dining has eight (8) Senior Dining sites throughout the county. They are warm, welcoming places for adults age 60 and over to socialize and enjoy tasty, nutritious noon meals with other individuals of similar ages and interests. Each site has a variety of daily programs and activities. There is a friendly manager on site who is knowledgeable about senior services and can offer important information, services or referrals.

Home Delivered Meal Program

Studies have shown that eating healthy can increase mental acuity, resistance to illness and disease, energy levels, immune system strength, recuperation speed and the ability to manage chronic health problems.

Receiving home-delivered meal ensures that seniors have access to adequate nutrition even when family support, mobility and resources are lacking.

The meals are:

  • Delivered between 11:00 am to 12:30 pm
  • Specialized diet are available when recommended by a physician
  • Short or long term service available
  • Each meal is equal to 1/3 of Recommended Dietary Requirements (RDA)

Seniors age 60 and older who are home-bound and at nutritional risk are eligible to participate in the program on a contribution-only basis. The suggested contribution is $4.00 per meal, but no one is denied a meal if he or she is unable to contribute. Contributions help the program help to provide more meals for other homebound seniors.
