OCO Senior Centers 

Nutrition Collaboration


Since 1974, OCO Nutrition Services programs have provided over 7 million meals to senior citizens aged 60 and older and their spouses, regardless of income, adults under 60 and youth. All meals are available throughout the county via the Meals-on-Wheels Program, afterschool sites and summer food service sites as well as at any of the six (6) Dining and Activity Centers. 
Meals are either followed by the USDA meal pattern requirements or planned by a registered dietitian that follows the recommended dietary allowance. The meals are prepared and delivered by our professional staff as well as a network of dedicated Volunteers.
 

Mission Statement:

Maintain the independence and quality of life for Oswego County residents by providing meals, recreation and transportation, while promoting and advocating wellness and nutritional support services.

 

 

Nutrition Services offers OCO-RIDES (Retired Individuals Driving the Elderly Services) that provides roundtrip transportation to Oswego County seniors to medical appointments in Onondaga County.

Programs are partially supported through grants from our partners:

  • Oswego County Office for the Aging 

  •  New York State Office for the Aging

  • The United Way of Greater Oswego, Inc.

       Oswego County's Office for the Aging.

 

Summer break is almost here! 

Nutrition Services is gearing up to serve more than 600 school aged chlidren during this summer break alone. Nutrition Services provides free meals to children during the summer as part of the USDA Summer Food Service Program. Over the past seven years we have served more than 105,000 meals to children in more than 20 locations throughout Oswego County. There are no income requirements for those served and any school aged child under the age of 18 may be eligible. 

Summer is an exciting time for children to enjoy playtime with friends, a week at camp, a family vacation, or time at the pool. But for many children who receive free and reduced-price meals at school, summer can mean hunger. Just as learning does not end when school lets out, neither does a child’s need for good nutrition.

We would like your support for Nutrition Services Summer Food Program, become a summer food site, or by spreading the word to other potential partners and families about the opportunity.

Thank you in advance for your support. We are looking forward to working with you to help feed the children in our communities. Call Nutrition Services at 315-598-4712 for more information.
