The Senior Nutrition Program provides tasty and nutritious lunches for seniors (age 60 and over) at several locations throughout Tulare and Kings counties.  We also deliver meals to the homebound who are unable to cook for themselves.

The communal dining program serves lunch in the pleasing and familiar surroundings of local senior or community centers, where participants also have the opportunity to enjoy each other’s company, make new friends, take classes, or play games.

Meals are served five days a week at most senior centers, and reservations are required a day ahead of time. A small donation per meal is requested but not required.

For seniors who are unable to attend the local senior centers, perhaps due to a long-term illness or a recent hospitalization, the Home-Delivered Meals program may be able to help. Homebound seniors who do not have friends, relatives, or paid help to provide assistance with meal preparation may be eligible to receive a five-day supply of frozen meals, delivered once a week. For home-delivered meals, a small donation per meal is suggested.

Donations are always anonymous, and eligible seniors will never be refused a meal due to inability to donate.

All the senior meals meet specific nutritional requirements, and a Registered Dietitian visits the senior centers frequently at lunchtime to offer free nutrition education and counseling.

For a list of senior center meal locations and the menus for the current month, please see the Contact and Location tab.
