dc.description.abstract Energy and nutrient intake from congregate meals (CM), noncongregate meals (NCM) and total daily intake (TDI) was studied for differences associated with age, income, education, marital status, gender, race, vitamin-mineral supplementation, Body Mass Index, Health Assessment, Activities of Daily Living (ADL) and Instrumental Activities of Daily Living (IADL).TDI was less than 100 percent of Recommended Dietary Allowances for energy, vitamin B6, calcium, magnesium and zinc. Men, single and divorced subjects, and those most educated had significantly greatest intake for various nutrients from CM and TDI; widows had the least. Racial effect was mixed. Young-old had greatest intakes from NCM and TDI. High intake from CM plus NCM did not make TDI adequate.CM was significantly associated with transportation (IADL) and walking (ADL). Those with some problems had lowest nutrient intakes; those with none, the greatest. For toileting (ADL), NCM and TDI intakes were greatest for those with considerable difficulty; lowest for those with some.
