Nutrition Program for Older Adultsfruitveggie_050113_0085_med.jpg

Marin County offers home-delivered meals and lunches served at congregate dining sites for residents aged 60 and older. There are no income limits. Participants are asked to contribute $3.50/meal delivered to your home and $3.00/meal served at congregate sites. Contributions are voluntary and no one is turned away for lack of funds.  Funding for this program, in part, is made available by the Older Americans Act, administered locally  by the  Marin County Department of Health and Human Services, Aging and Adult Services.
