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 Thursday. Meals on Wheels Service is available Mon-Friday. For more information, please click here for Meal Services.
