Adequate nutrition plays an important part in maintaining good health. Our nutrition program offers a varied menu each month, provides a well balanced meal, and ensures that 1/3 of the USDA recommended daily requirements are contained in each meal served.
Hot noon meals are available at 6 nutrition sites throughout the county for a cost-donation of $3.50. Transportation can be arranged for those wanting to attand the site. Meals can also be delivered to qualifying home-bound residents for a cost-donation of $3.75 for all sites except Appleton, which is $4.50 and includes a sack supper. Please call 849-1451 or (920) 989-2700, ext. 451 for information on how to participate in this program.

Meals can be provided for a general diet, no-added salt diet, and a 1500 to 1600 calorie ADA diet. Meals are normally delivered Monday through Friday. Delivery of the noon meal can be expected between 11 A.M. and 1 P.M.
Please call (920) 849-1451 or (920) 989-2700, ext. 451 to cancel a meal.: Sufficient notice of cancellation must be given. Once the meal leaves the site, the intended recipient will be billed for the meal, even if he is not at home. A meal will not be left at a home when the recipient does not answer the door, even though he must still pay for the meal.
If a recipient does not answer the door, we need to be sure that the person is safe. We will telephone emergency contacts to check on the person. Sometimes we will call apartment managers or neighbors. In the event that we are not able to make contact we will notify emergency personnel, who will then respond as if it is an emergency.
