Frequently Asked Questions

Who is eligible for home delivered meals?

A person who is over 60 and home-bound due to age or health may be eligible for home delivered meals. Some people under 60 who are disabled may also qualify for home delivered meals. Health conditions and nutritional risk are deciding factors in eligibility. Income status does not determine eligibility.

How do I get someone signed up for home delivered meals?

Call the Aging & Disability Resource center at 812-876-3383 to speak with a community resource specialist.

Is there any fee involved with the congregate or home delivered meals?

A donation of $2.50 per meal is requested but no one is turned away for lack of funds.

Can I just show up at the congregate meal site or do I need to make a reservation?

If you are new to the congregate meal site please go and register as a participant. Usually there is extra food and the site manager will be able to serve you. After you have registered you can sign up for meals the following week and a meal will be ordered for you. Each site welcomes new participants and we hope you’ll join us soon.

How do I register for the Healthy Options restaurant vouchers?

You must register at Area 10 Agency on Aging and sign for your meal vouchers. A $2.50 donation is requested for each meal voucher. No one is turned away for inability to pay.

Who is eligible for food pantry services?

Anyone over the age of 60 who is homebound, does not live with someone who can drive and makes less than $1860.00 per month. Call the Aging & Disability Resource Center at 876-3383 for more information and to register for this program.

Do I get any choices about food I get in the food pantry program?

Yes. You will have the opportunity to tell the food pantry coordinator which foods you do not like or cannot prepare by yourself. Options may be available when the delivery is made. We are making an effort to give people more options of food selections. Pet food is available for your companion animal as well. Please let us know if you have a cat or a dog that may need food or treats.
