This is National Nutrition Month, and the 50th anniversary of an amendment to the Older Americans Act that established a national nutrition program for adults aged 60 and older. At AgeSpan, we offer a wide variety of programs to provide meals and nutrition-related services to thousands of people, every month. Our team of dedicated employees is what makes our nutrition programs so successful. If you would like to join us in this essential and rewarding work, we have openings for part-time and per diem roles that can fit your schedule.
Linda V of Tyngsborough has been a home-delivered meals site supervisor and driver for 15 years and loves the work: “It helps me financially and it’s a flexible job. I’m done for the day by noontime.”
