The Osceola Council on Aging’s Nutrition Program was created to improve the health and well-being of our community’s senior citizens. Our Meals on Wheels program delivers nutritious, freshly prepared meals directly to the homes of our clients who are unable to leave their homes or prepare their meals themselves. Our meals are designed to meet the unique nutritional needs of seniors and are prepared with fresh, wholesome ingredients.

In addition to Meals on Wheels, we also offer a food pantry program, which provides boxes of food to seniors who are able to pick them up. Our food pantry is stocked with a variety of healthy, shelf-stable items such as canned fruits and vegetables, grains, and proteins. We understand that many seniors struggle with access to healthy and affordable food, and our food pantry program is designed to help alleviate some of these challenges.

At Osceola Council on Aging, we believe that good nutrition is a vital component of overall health and well-being. Our Nutrition Program is not only focused on delivering meals and food boxes but also on providing nutrition education and counseling to our clients. We strive to empower our clients with the knowledge and resources they need to make informed decisions about their health.

If you or a loved one is in need of food supplies, contact us at 407-847-2144 or search from the list below to find the closest food pantry.
