TRIO meals not only taste good and appeal to seniors, but also meet all regulatory requirements to provide 1/3 DRI requirements. Our corporate chef, registered dietitian and local management team create custom regional menus that are nutritionally balanced yet rich in variety and flavor. TRIO Holiday and Special Event menus keep seniors engaged and excited about the congregate program. Valentine’s Day, Mother’s Day, Father’s Day plus other local themed holidays are a reason to celebrate special meals at congregate sites. Seniors who require special diet meals are often more at-risk because they are, at times, unable to perform the unique preparation of their meals. TRIO Registered Dietitians and on-site teams accommodate special diets of these seniors to reflect regional preferences. We provide a variety of fresh, chilled and frozen meals for congregate centers and home delivered meals.
Meal production can take place in a TRIO-owned culinary operation center or a client-owned kitchen. Our production kitchens are filled with caring team members who play an important role in nourishing seniors. These team members are committed to providing each senior with quality meals full of flavor and nutrition.
Procurement is the foundation for quality meal production. Procurement safeguards that menu ingredients are good quality and available to meet production demands for large meal quantities. TRIO uses quality ingredients to prepare our chef-inspired recipes in local kitchens. Thus, delivering a quality, yet cost-effective meal.
TRIO Community Meals performs logistical plans with precision. Reliable delivery and efficient meal routing are at the core of our logistics plan for congregate sites and home-bound seniors. Congregate sites receive meals at a consistent daily time allowing for site activity plans. Home-bound seniors are assured of receiving their meals with TRIO’s consistent delivery schedule.
TRIO customizes the logistics plan for each program. Our logistics team can deliver meals to congregate site and home-bound senior homes or prepare packaged meals for pick-up and delivery by volunteers.
