COVID-19 SAFETY PROTOCOL UPDATE: JANUARY 2022
With the current omicron COVID-19 surge, and in accordance with COVID-19 safety recommendations from the County of San Diego, masks must be worn indoors at all Serving Seniors facilities, regardless of vaccination status. Masks may be temporarily removed while eating and drinking in the dining room.
To-go meals will continue indefinitely and congregate dining will continue to be available at a limited capacity. For the latest COVID-19 updates, meal times and reopened congregate dining locations, visit our COVID-19 page.
Thank you for continuing to keep our community safe.
Congregate dining meal service at Serving Seniors facilities has reopened.
Serving Seniors provides over 956,000 nutritious meals a year. Designed in partnership with a Registered Dietician, our meals provide one-third of our clients’ nutrition requirements and accommodate a wide variety of dietary needs including low-sodium and low-fat diets.
Unlike similar programs, we never charge a fee, ensuring that no senior, regardless of income, ever has to go hungry.
We serve breakfast and lunch daily across multiple sites throughout San Diego County, as far south as San Ysidro to as far north as Oceanside. In addition to meeting the nutrition needs of our clients, this program acts, for many of our clients, as the center of their social lives. Lonely and socially isolated seniors are encouraged to engage with their peers and make friends, which contributes to physical and psychological wellness.
Along with having the options of congregate dining and home delivery, to-go meals are also available for seniors to pick-up daily at the Gary and Mary West Senior Wellness Center.
We deliver fresh, nutritious meals (breakfast and lunch) directly to the homes of homebound seniors. Meals are delivered five days a week, with extra meals provided each Friday to ensure our clients have plenty to eat over the weekend. Our drivers are trained to identify any potential health or social issues clients may be experiencing, and work with our Home-Delivered Meals Support Services Coordinator to ensure appropriate assistance is provided.
