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 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 weekday and frozen meals are provided for the weekends. 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, so please check the program availability in your area.
