Home-Delivered Meal Program
Eating a balanced and healthy diet is important at every age, and especially for older adults. The Camarillo Health Care District, in partnership with the Ventura County Area Agency on Aging and City of Camarillo, provides a home-delivered meal option for residents age 60 and older.
Enrollment is required for this federal program. For more information or for inquiries about eligibility, please call 805-388-1952, ext. 168, or email Senior Nutrition Program Coordinator Mayra Tapia.
Similar to a “Meals on Wheels” program, supplemental, ready-to-heat entrees are delivered by caring staff. Entrée selections vary to include beef, chicken, fish, turkey and other specialty dishes that provide a diverse and balanced low-sodium diet designed by the Ventura County Area Agency on Aging Registered Dietitian. Sides such as whole wheat bread, fruit, yogurt and milk are also included.
In addition to nutrition, the program assists in the overall safety of clients with periodic visits to assess welfare and to provide referrals to additional services as needed. Deliveries are made on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, in the mornings.
Please call 805-388-1952, ext. 168, to enroll.
A $3 per meal donation is suggested.
