Approximately 6,000 seniors participating in the Massachusetts Nutrition Program responded to a survey assessing the impact and quality of services. Due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic, many programs were again unable to collect surveys from congregate meal clients. Meals are provided to seniors aged 60 and over at meal sites or are delivered to those that are homebound. Over 10 million meals were provided to approximately 83,000 seniors in order to improve nutrition and health and reduce hunger and loneliness. These include medically tailored and diverse meal types. Over 7,000 volunteers contribute approximately 45,000 hours yearly. Other nutrition services provided include nutrition education and individual Medical Nutrition Therapy.
