County of San Diego Home-Delivered Meal Providers 

For more information about nutrition services supported by the County of San Diego, please contact us via email or by phone at 800-510-2020. 

One of the most important elements of good health is nutrition. To improve nutritional health of seniors in our region, Aging & Independence Services provides meals at various seniors dining centers, as well as home-delivered meals to eligible senior individuals in their homes. Through funding from the Older Americans Act, nutritious meals are available for a suggested donation to senior age 60 and above. When meals are available, no senior shall be turned away for inability to donate. 

The County’s Aging & Independence Services department contracts with community partners to provide home-delivered hot lunches, for eligible adults. Adults 60 and older who are homebound due to illness or disability can ask to have meals delivered to them if they are registered with a County of San Diego nutrition provider that offers this service. Once a request for a home-delivered meal is made, a representative from the nutrition program will visit the older adult to assess the need. If appropriate for the program, a hot meal is delivered each week day and frozen meals are provided for the weekends. Meals are made to accommodate the physical needs of the senior. Follow up assessments are required on a quarterly basis to ensure the senior still qualifies for the program. The cost for each meal is a voluntary donation. 

Contact your nearest home-delivered meal provider to inquire about eligibility.
