Serving Seniors provides over 640,000 nutritious meals a year. Designed in partnership with a Registered Dietician, our meals provide one-third of our clients’ nutrition requirements and accommodate a wide variety of dietary needs including low-sodium and low-fat diets.
Unlike similar programs, we never charge a fee, ensuring that no senior, no matter how poor, ever has to go hungry.
We serve breakfast and lunch daily at 11 sites across San Diego County, as far south as San Ysidro to as far north as Oceanside. In addition to meeting the nutrition needs of our clients, this program acts, for many of our clients, as the center of their social lives. Lonely and socially isolated seniors are encouraged to engage with their peers and make friends, which contributes to physical and psychological wellness.

We deliver fresh, nutritious meals (breakfast and lunch) directly to the homes of over 600 homebound seniors a day. Meals are delivered five days a week, with extra meals provided each Friday to ensure our clients have plenty to eat over the weekend. Our drivers are trained to identify any potential health or social issues clients may be experiencing, and work with our Home-Delivered Meals Support Services Coordinator to ensure appropriate assistance is provided.
