One of the important elements of good health is nutrition. Aging and Independence Services provides meals at various centers as well as to individuals in their homes.

 

Senior Dining Centers

With funding from the Older Americans Act, the County's Aging and Independence Services contracts with a number of nutrition centers to provide hot, nutritious lunches during the week, for adults age 60 and older. Besides promoting better nutrition, these centers reduce the isolation of many older adults who may live alone.

Home-Delivered Meals

Adults 60 and older who are homebound due to illness or disability can ask to have meals delivered to them. A social worker will visit to assess the need. If appropriate for the program, a hot meal is delivered each weekday and frozen meals are provided for the weekends. The cost is a voluntary donation.

Brown Bag Program

The Brown Bag Program delivers surplus food items each month to low-income adults age 60 and older, helping to supplement their food budgets.

Food is gleaned by volunteers (mostly seniors themselves) and donated by farmers, warehouses, packing companies and retail food chains. The program is coordinated by:

Meals on the Move (MOM)

Meals on the Move (MOM) supplements private-sector meal-delivery services on Thanksgiving and Mother's Day, and also provides a limited number of breakfast deliveries to the frailest homebound seniors.
