Senior Meals Still Available

Nutritious meals for *adults 60 or older are still available.

The Corona Virus forced the closure of the senior and community centers in Stanislaus County. Most of the senior lunch programs converted to a weekly frozen meal box pick up program and the program has been extended through December 2020.

Pick up sites are available in Modesto, Riverbank, Oakdale, Hughson, Turlock, Grayson, Patterson and Newman.

The Traditions brand frozen meals include: 5 entrées with vegetables, fruit juice or fruit cup, sliced wheat bread and a dessert.

What to expect: Once you call to register your name will be added to the roster at the site of your choosing.

Reservations are required at least one day prior to ensure an adequate number of meals will be available. Those without reservation will only receive meals if available after all registered persons are served first.

COST: A voluntary contribution of $3.00 per meal is requested. Any amount helps fund more meals. No eligible person will be denied due to inability to contribute.
