The Elderly Nutrition Program provides nutritious meals for *adults 60 or older. There are 13 congregate lunch sites in Stanislaus County usually held at a senior or community center. Home delivered meals are available for eligible homebound older adults. The meals served provide at least one-third of the recommended dietary allowances of the National Academy of Sciences.
COST: There is no fee for the meal however a suggested donation of $3.00 per meal is requested and a contribution of any amount helps fund more meals. No eligible participant will be denied a meal due to inability to contribute.
CONGREGATE LUNCH SITES: A freshly prepared hot meal is served Monday through Friday between 11:30 -12:00 at most sites (See days of operation) at the following locations:
Note: Reservations are required to ensure an adequate number of meals will be available. Please call the site manager at least one day prior to reserve a meal.

Home Delivery Program
To qualify for a home-delivered meal a person must be 60 years of age or older, and be home-bound (does not drive). Those seniors that live alone, are older & frail are the highest priority for the home delivery service. The Home Delivered meals are delivered twice a week on scheduled days (Monday - Friday between 9:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m.) depending on route assignment.
