Underserved Communities

Senior nutrition programs target older adults with the greatest social and economic need, which includes older adults who are low-income, those from minority populations, people living in rural communities, those with limited English proficiency, and those at risk of institutional care. Here are resources to help reach and serve these individuals.  

Social Isolation

Social connections are of vital importance for everyone, but older adults are at increased risk of loneliness and social isolation — factors that have consistently been shown to negatively affect mental and physical health. Find strategies to improve social connections for your nutrition program participants and their caregivers.  


Generating fresh ideas and new ways of doing things can help senior nutrition programs as they navigate challenges and work to remain relevant in a rapidly changing world, from public health emergencies to meeting the needs of a new generation of older adults. Discover how programs across the country are identifying innovative and creative practices to improve services, diversifying funding, and improving the health of recipients. 

Business Management

Business management is the coordination and administration of program activities, tasks, and resources to achieve an organization’s objectives. Good business management skills can help ensure successful and sustainable operations, resulting in more people served, higher quality programs, and more. Find pages with information on specific areas of business management to help you meet and exceed your program goals.

About us

The Nutrition and Aging Resource Center, also known as the National Resource Center on Nutrition and Aging (NRCNA), is funded by the Administration for Community Living (ACL). The purpose of the NRCNA is to build the capacity of senior nutrition programs funded by the Older Americans Act (OAA) in order to provide high-quality, person-centered services and to assist the ACL and stakeholders to identify current and emerging issues and opportunities that enhance program sustainability and resiliency. The intent of the OAA senior nutrition program is to reduce food insecurity, hunger, and malnutrition; enhance socialization; and promote the health and well-being of older adults.
