CAPECO is issuing a Request for Proposals (RFP) to identify and select qualified contractor(s) to provide Nutrition Program services, including Home Delivered Meal and Congregate Meal services within Morrow and Umatilla counties.
Congregate meals can be offered in a variety of settings, including nutrition sites, senior centers/community centers, churches, schools, adult care facilities, restaurants, or other congregate settings. Gathering for meals offers the opportunity to socialize, gain support by coming together, and includes nutrition education provided through CAPECO. The service is more than just a meal; its purpose is to nourish the whole person.
Home delivered meals are critical to maintaining independence and allowing people to remain living in their own homes. Friendly visiting when meals are delivered one or more days/week also provides vital social connection for people who may feel isolated or lonely.
Interested parties can request a copy of the RFP packet by contacting Jody Warnock, CAPECO Program Director, at firstname.lastname@example.org or 541-278-5668. The packet includes detailed information about services to be provided, the RFP process, and necessary proposal documents.
