Nutrition Services
The Passaic County Division of Nutrition Services is a federally funded agency, which operates under the auspices of the Passaic County Department of Senior Services, Disability and Veterans Affairs, as well as the Passaic County Board of Chosen Freeholders. The mission of Nutrition Services is to provide nutritious meals and other supportive services to assist both congregate and home delivered recipients in maintaining and / or improving their health status and independence.

Meals On Wheels
Home Delivered Meal Service (Meals on Wheels) is available to homebound older adults who are unable to provide for their own nutritional needs due to acute / chronic illness or handicap. Please note that applicants must meet specific program requirements in order to be eligible for service. Service includes the delivery of one hot meal per day Monday through Friday. In addition, weekend service is also available if needed.


Nutrition Centers
In addition to Meals on Wheels service, our agency also operates six senior nutrition centers (congregate meals), which provides one hot meal Monday through Friday in a friendly environment for older adults that are conducive to socialization. Each of our senior nutrition centers conducts various activities such as parties, trips, lectures, etc. that meet the interest of the participants. The only requirement for participation in either program is age. That is the participant must be sixty years of age or older or have a spouse that is at least sixty years old.
