Nutrition and Food Insecurity

The Senior Center provides nutritional information through monthly programs and through the monthly newsletter “Seniors Taking Charge.”  

More seniors every year are experiencing food insecurity.  The number of older adults in Georgia who currently face the threat of hunger is more than 300,000. 

At the Oconee County Senior Center, meals are served on a daily basis Monday through Friday.   Meals on Wheels Service is also available. For more information, please click here for Meal Services.
