Good nutrition is important to everyone and homebound senior are especially at risk.  FTHRA's Nutrition Program is partnered with Meals on Wheels to help seniors not go hungry.  We provide nutritious meals that meet USDA guidelines for seniors.   Wonderful volunteers in all our communities deliver the meals to each person.


Meals on Wheels is available in Carter, Greene, Johnson, Hancock, Hawkins, Sullivan, Unicoi and Washington Counties.  Volunteers are always needed in each of these counties.  Volunteers are essential to the program because not only do they deliver a meal to the recipients, often they are the only people the recipients see each day.


Everyone who receive the home delivered meals are assessed by Aging and Resource Connection (ADRC).  ADRC is a program through the Area Agency on Aging that do an evaluation to determine what services for which the person is eligible.  Please call 1-866-836-6678 for more information about eligibility.   Private pay is also available if you have a loved one that could benefit from these meals.  The cost of the meals for one month is $130.  Please call 423-722-5107 for Information and Assistance.


FTHRA also provides nutritious meals in a community meal setting.  These community meals sites are listed below.  Anyone over the age of 60 is welcome to enjoy a lunch time meal.  Registration with the meal site coordinator is all that is required (at least 24 hours in advance to ensure enough meals are available).
