Elderly Nutrition Program

Elderly Nutrition Program

Elderly Nutrition Program

We serve seniors, 60 and older, throughout Harnett County a lunchtime meal five days a week.  

If you or someone you know needs more information about our program, please call Harnett County Department on Aging 910-814-6072 or email:


Our Goals:  

  • To promote, maintain and improve the health and well-being of older adults through the provision of a nutritionally balanced meal five days per week in strategically located sites throughout Harnett County.
  • To reduce the isolation experienced by many older adults through opportunities for social interaction by participation in the nutrition program.
  • To provide nutrition education and supportive service activities in order to enhance the older adult’s ability to remain independent.
  • To enable impaired older adults to remain at home as long as possible and facilitate the discharge of older adults from hospitals and care providing facilities.

Interested in Volunteering to deliver meals?  

We are always in need of volunteers throughout our county to deliver meals to our elderly homebound clients. If you are interested, please contact the Harnett County Elderly Nutrition Program at 910-814-6265 or your local senior center.
