Sunshine Center Nutrition Program

The Sunshine Center provides nutrition and transportation services to people 60 years of age and older in order to end isolation and allow them the live as independently as possible.

HOME DELIVERED MEALS are provided to seniors in Jefferson County (including the city of Mt. Vernon) who are homebound because of illness, physical or mental impairment, or otherwise isolated.  Hot, delicious meals can be delivered Monday through Friday, with frozen meals available for the weekends.  Home delivery is partially funded with  state, federal and United Way grants and meal recipients are asked to make a $3.50 donation per meal.  Meal orders must be made one day in advance. Home delivery in Mt. Vernon is provided by generous volunteers.
