This document provides COVID-19 suggestions for senior nutrition programs to align with State and local guidance.

Meals on Wheels America has hosted the National Resource Center on Nutrition and Aging (NRCNA) as part of a cooperative agreement since 2011 with the Administration for Community Living (ACL) ending on December 31, 2020. Please stay tuned for future updates as website changes are coming soon.
