Home-Delivered Meal Program

Similar to a “Meals on Wheels” program, supplemental, ready-to-heat entrees are delivered by caring volunteers. 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.
