Nutritional Senior Meals: How Scientific & Technological Advances Allow More to Be Fed for Less Money

Share Article

U.S. senior's population is growing rapidly and many rely on meal programs. State & Federal budget cuts are limiting how many get food so the problem was taken on by MBX Nutrition which used science & technology to create a cost effective solution.

Meals on Wheels, Area Agencies on Aging, Congregate Meal Programs everywhere say hello to science and technology company MBX Nutrition. It’s new, low-cost Senior Nutrition program was developed to help feed more people by supplying food for less than half the price paid per meal now. It could not come at a better time.

Senior Nutrition programs across the country are increasingly at risk. State & federal agencies are cutting budgets. Labor and energy costs are increasing. On top of that, there is the growing seniors population that’s getting bigger & bigger everyday. This combination hits the senior food programs hard.

Yet, these programs are needed now more than ever. Today, the U.S. age 60 and older population totals greater than 57 million people. But shockingly nearly 10 million are considered “food-insecure” - meaning they will go without food. That’s an issue to many including Chip Marsland, a leading nutrition & food technologist and Chief Executive of MBX Nutrition.

Marsland believes the national and local programs responsible for feeding seniors have been handed a technical problem that cannot be solved with the resources they have. “But that’s what engineering, science and technology is for, to solve difficult problems. And we applied just that to create a sustainable, cost-effective, easy preparation Senior Meals solution.”

After concentrated research and development, manufacturing trials, and taste testing, MBX introduced its essential nutrient-dense Senior Nutrition line at last week’s Meals-On-Wheels conference in Boston for $1.69 per meal in bulk. That’s less than half the $3.50 - $7.00 paid per meal nationally. The company also developed a stand-alone senior meals system for small programs that utilizes the company’s proprietary food & beverage appliance system.    

“Despite what most think, our food system is broken. This affects Senior Nutrition – a much needed program. The good thing is science & technology can be used to fix it. Moreover, the MBX solution now available provides higher quality essential nutrition to more seniors at a fraction of the current cost. This enables cash strapped programs to feed more people with less money. Everybody wins,” says Marsland.
