Since 1974, OCO Nutrition Services programs have provided over 10 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.

Programs are partially supported through grants from our partners: Oswego County Office for the Aging, NYS Office for the Aging and the United Way of Greater Oswego County, Inc.

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.
Kitchen & Distribution

Every weekday over 1,000 meals are produced in our Mexico Kitchen, and then delivered to our client’s homes and Dining & Activity Centers.
