Popularly known as "Meals-on-Wheels", this federally funded service is a national program administered locally to deliver well-balanced, lunchtime meals to frail, homebound individuals who are at least 60 years of age. Elders are asked to make a $2.00 donation per meal to help underwrite a portion of the cost of the meal.
GSSSI delivers hot lunches to elders living in Brimfield, Hampden, Holland, Palmer, Springfield, Wales, and Wilbraham. Meals are delivered Monday-Friday. Regular meals, modified meals for diabetics, and Kosher meals are available. Those who have difficulty chewing or swallowing can request a pureed meal.
Modified Menu (same as the Regular Menu except dessert as noted)
Located in senior centers, elder complexes and other convenient places, congregate meal sites are where people age 60 and over can enjoy good food and good company. Participants receive a nutritious noon meal and have the opportunity to socialize and make new acquaintances. Participants are asked to make a $1.75 donation per meal to help underwrite a portion of the cost.
