Since 1974, OCO Nutrition Services programs have provided over 8.5 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.

Dining & Activity Centers

All six of the Dining & Activity Centers are constantly busy with the seniors that attend! It's a great place for seniors to come and socialize with friends for the afternoon while enjoying a nutritious and filling lunch. There's crafts, games, wii bowling, birthday celebrations, annual holiday parties and so much more to look forward to!

If your 60 years old and over and would like to attend a center, please call the Center Manager to find out more information about the center or to make your lunch reservation.

We ask you give us atleast a days notice before you plan on coming for lunch so we can prepare for enough food.
