James started out as a congregate program recipient, then became the President of the Senior Nutrition Program Advisory Council for numerous terms. He has utilized a consortium of our services over the years and currently is Home Delivered meal recipient. Here is his story.
“I am an 83 year old male who is currently home-bound and 100% disabled . Without Senior Nutrition Program and home care I could not manage. My doctors do not want me near a stove! The Senior Nutrition meals are well balanced and I am not able to count calories. I could not manage without Catholic Charities Senior Nutrition Program. The program delivers the meals in all kind of weather, snow, sleet, rain or hail. God Bless the Senior Nutrition Program.”
