The Senior Nutrition Program, which is known as Meals on Wheels, is available weekdays year-round to deliver hot, locally cooked meals to islanders aged 60 or over.

In addition to the minimum age, recipient qualifications include difficulty preparing their own nutritious meals and they do not drive.

A team of volunteers delivers the meals.

For details, call or see Elizabeth Dyer or Art Mines, 252-928-3951.

The Senior Nutrition Program is made possible on the island through the Albemarle Commission Area Agency on Aging.
