Nutrition Programs

Meals for the elderly and disabled delivered to the home or provided at the senior centers.

Nutrition Programs    

The St. Louis Area agency on Aging (SLAAA) provides home delivered meals and congregate meals to seniors 60 yrs and older and to persons with disabilities 18- 59 years.   

Home Delivered Meals

Meals are delivered hot, between the hours of 10:30am -12:30pm, Monday through Friday.      

All meals meet federal standards and a variety of diet meals are provided. SLAAA's goal is to provide healthy foods, nutrition supplements as needed, and good sound nutrition information to the citizens of the City of St. Louis, in the hope of keeping seniors in their homes and out of the hospital and or the nursing home.    

Persons who are identified as being at nutritional risk are seen by a registered dietitian, receive a complete nutritional assessment and counseling.  If it is determined necessary, then nutritional supplements are provided.    

The SLAAA dietitian provides quarterly nutrition education to keep the clients abreast of the most current and factual nutrition information.    

Meal Emergency Pack

A three meal emergency pack is provided to all meal clients.  These meals are  used in the event of an emergency or if inclement weather prevents daily meal delivery. 

Referrals for either the congregate or home delivered meal programs can be made at 314-612-5918 or 877-612-5918.
