Our network of drivers, nutrition staff, community partners, volunteers, donors, and advocates are an impressive force against senior neglect and malnutrition.

The Benefits of Home Delivered Meals

Our Home-Delivered Meals program helps vulnerable older adults maintain a healthy lifestyle and remain living independently by providing nutritious meals, safety checks, and friendly social interaction.  

Many seniors run the risk of food insecurity as a result of lack of enough income to buy food, isolation, or as a result of suffering from chronic illness or other conditions that affect independence.

Proper nutrition in older adults has many benefits, including:

  • Maintaining health and wellbeing
  • Improving the ability to heal
  • Reducing the risk for medical complications
  • Reducing the prospect of hospital readmission

Requirements for the Home-Delivered Meal Program:

  • 60+ years old, frail and homebound
  • Spouse of 60+ program participant
  • Living in Amador or Calaveras Counties

Call us at (209) 223-3015 and we will arrange for an intake application specialist to come to your home and assist you with understanding the program and completing the application process.  Once your eligibility is determined, it may take three or four days before you start receiving frozen meals.

We deliver more than a meal – our staff and volunteers are a lifeline for seniors isolated in our rural communities.

This program is partially funded by Area 12 Agency on Aging
