Jewish Family & Children’s Service of Greater Mercer County has begun its Healthy@Home Senior Nutrition Program, a non-sectarian initiative which provides low-income, homebound seniors with healthy food and nutrition information delivered directly to their door. Clients work with a geriatric care manager and registered dietician to select foods that are healthy, easy to prepare, and enjoyable; choices include fresh fruits and vegetables, breads, poultry, frozen fish and chicken, frozen fruits and vegetables, canned goods, and soups. At least once a month, volunteers deliver the food along with nutrition information, recipes, and food safety tips.

The Healthy@Home program encourages socialization and community connections for these homebound and isolated seniors by offering a Friendly Visitor, who spend meaningful time with these seniors.

Contact Beth Englezos, manager of Senior Programs & Hunger Prevention, at or 609-987-8100, ext. 126.
