Congregate Meals
Join us for lunch! All individuals age 60 years or older are welcome to participate in Congregate meal services. Contact the local meal site and transit company in your city for more information.

Home-Delivered Meals
Home-Delivered Meals (HDM) are available to frail, homebound seniors age 60+ and their spouses. Recipients must be unable to travel to a congregate site.

To determine eligibility for the Home-Delivered Meal component, local meal providers schedule a friendly in-home visit to begin meal service, which includes an assessment of the type of meal appropriate for the participant in his/her living environment. Participants are reassessed quarterly, and along the way staff makes referrals for any additional needs for nutrition-related supportive services, such as outreach, transportation, food shopping assistance, and escort to congregate nutrition sites.

This program is not income based. Suggested donation is $3.00 per meal. Waitlists are common and other eligibility requirements apply.

For general information about the Senior Nutrition countywide, contact VCAAA at (805) 477-7300 or LOIS.VCAAA@ventura.org.
