The Isabella County Commission on Aging manages the Home Delivered Meals Program in both Isabella County.
The Home Delivered Meals Program provides nutritionally balanced meals to individuals who are 60 years of age or older, the spouse of someone over the age of 60 or an individual with disabilities who resides in a non-institutional household with a person who is eligible for and receiving Home Delivered Meals.
There is no income eligibility requirement for this program. However, the individual who receives Home Delivered Meals must be homebound (does not leave their home under normal circumstances), physically or mentally unable to attend a Congregate Meal Site or unable to adequately prepare their own meals.
The Isabella County Commission on Aging manages the Congregate Meals Program in both Isabella and Gratiot Counties.
The Congregate Meals Program provides nutritionally balanced meals to individuals who are 60 years of age and older, or the spouse of someone over the age of 60. The meals are provided at Congregate Meal Sites throughout our two county service area. Our meal sites promote better health through improved nutrition, social activities and educational opportunities.
The Congregate Meals Program is available to Older Adults on a donation basis. At the current time the requested donation is $2.50 per meal. If the Congregate Meal participant is unable to pay the requested donation rate, they can still take part in the program and receive the meals. The program is based on need, not the participant's ability to donate.
