“The services that we provide the seniors in our area are critical; it’s not just a warm meal, but also a friendly visit, sometimes the only human contact a senior gets the whole day,” said Marianne Kranz, SAGE Director of Meals on Wheels and Home Support Services. “Together, we can keep seniors living independently, healthier at home and feeling more connected to their community as they age.”

For more information about the Meals on Wheels program at SAGE, or if you know someone who could benefit from the service, contact Marianne Kranz at: 908-273-5554 or email: mkranz@sageeldercare.org.
