COA Nutrition Services

The Mansfield Council On Aging participates in the regional senior nutrition program offered through Bristol Elder Services, Inc. The Nutrition Program provides healthy and balanced meals for seniors designed by a nutritionist.

All meals are lower sodium and consist of a protein, a starch and a vegetable, bread and butter, dessert and milk. People with special dietetic needs may choose for a low or no sugar content meal with low fat milk.

The Mansfield nutrition program offers Meals On Wheels, Daily Lunches, Summer Coupon Program and Special Entertainment Lunches.

Nutritious home delivered meals (Meals-On-Wheels)
Offered through Bristol Elder Services Nutrition Programs. Home Delivered Meals services are available to seniors age 60 and older who are homebound due to illness or age and are unable to prepare meals.

Those who are enrolled in this program receive meals Monday through Friday that are nutritionally balanced and wholesome. Seniors who wish to receive Home Delivered Meals will meet with staff from Mansfield Council On Aging and Bristol Elder Services to determine the type of meal and the amount of days needed.

The food is prepared daily by a catering company, and then brought to the COA where it is carefully packaged. The suggested and voluntary donation is $2 per meal. return to menu
