Adults 60 and older who are homebound due to illness or disability can ask to have meals delivered to them if they are registered with a County of San Diego nutrition provider that offers this service.
Once a request for a home-delivered meal is made, a representative from the nutrition program will visit the older adult to assess the need. If appropriate for the program, a hot meal is delivered each week day and frozen meals are provided for the weekends. Meals are made to accommodate the physical needs of the senior. Follow up assessments are required on a quarterly basis to ensure the senior still qualifies for the program. The cost for each meal is a voluntary donation.
Not all cities are covered by the County’s nutrition program. To see if a program provides services in your area, view the Senior Nutrition Centers and Home Delivered Programs fact sheet.
If you do not qualify for home-delivered meals but you are age 60 or older, you may visit a senior dining center for meal. Visit the Senior Dining Centers page for more information about the programs.
