GRADD providing hot meals to keep seniors ‘Healthy at Home’ during COVID-19 crisis in Western Ky.

The Green River Area Agency on Aging and Independent Living has been authorized to provide hot meals to all seniors age 60 and over who need them during this COVID-19 crisis.

The meals are being made available through Gov. Beshear’s “Healthy at Home” initiative, a testament to his commitment to protecting all Kentuckians, and especially those who are among our most vulnerable citizens.

For seniors who are able and have transportation, a lunch-time meal can be picked up at their local senior center Monday through Friday. Home delivery is available for those who are unable to pick up their meal.

There is no charge for the meal, but donations are accepted and the suggested donation per meal is $1.50.

Jennifer Williams, Associate Director for Social Services, said, “The knowledge that they can have access to a daily, hot and nutritious meal will hopefully provide reassurance for many seniors during these uncertain times. As an agency providing senior services, we are grateful for the opportunity to extend this service and reach seniors who otherwise might be trying to stretch their pantry items and feeling anxious about getting to the grocery to restock.”

To access these meals or to learn about other senior services, please call GRADD’s Aging and Disability Resource Center at 1-800-928-9094.
