West Palm Beach, FL – As a component of the Palm Beach County Hunger Relief Initiative and the Area Agency on Aging’s mission to feed hungry seniors in the community, United Way of Palm Beach County has provided the Area Agency on Aging with funding to distribute 15,004 home-delivered meals to seniors in Palm Beach County.

The meals are being provided to seniors who have already been assessed to be at nutritional risk but due to lack of other funding have had to remain on a waiting list for nutrition services. These home-delivered meals will assist the seniors to maintain their independence in their homes.


“The Area Agency on Aging is grateful for the generous funding and support from the United Way of Palm Beach County Hunger Relief Initiative,” said CEO Dwight D. Chenette, MPH, MBA. “This support will reduce the number of seniors who otherwise may go hungry or go without proper nutrition.”
The Agency’s Helpline is the gateway to services for seniors and their caregivers. If you know of individuals who may be in need of assistance, please refer them to the Helpline at 1-866-684-5885.

The Area Agency on Aging is dedicated to promoting, supporting and advocating for the independence, dignity and wellbeing of seniors, adults with disabilities, veterans of all ages and those who care for them in a manner that values diversity, reflects the communities we serve and embraces the collaboration of the aging network.
