Meals and Nutrition

Proper nutrition is vital to remaining healthy and aging well. PCOA provides a variety of outside resources that can assist depending upon your situation. These options range from meals delivered in your home to grocery shopping services. Some services may be private pay, but there are non-profit organizations that also work to alleviate hunger and get homebound adults nutritious food.

Community Lunch Programs

Meal and nutrition programs exist around the county and are run by various organizations. PCOA has the largest community lunch program with 13 sites around the county. Not only do these programs help low-income older adults receive the nutrition they need, the programs also allow them to make new social connections with their neighbors. Each program has different requirements for service and most require registration prior to attending.
