Hot Meals, Friendly Faces
Do you need a hot nourishing meal and good company?
Our On-Site Meal Centers serve hot and nutritious meals five days a week.* They also serve as a place to spend time with friends and family. Education, socialization and physical activities help keep our seniors feeling youthful. Our centers offer activities to stimulate minds, encourage activity, and inspire a sense of community.
How to qualify:
To qualify for our On-Site Meal Program, you or your spouse must be:
- 60 years of age or older
- Ocean County resident
Help us serve the community
Though no donation is required, each participant is asked to make a small contribution of $2 per meal to help defray food and preparation costs. It costs over $10 to prepare and serve each meal. Every donation helps us ensure that no senior is ever denied because they can’t afford a contribution.
All meals are approved by a qualified nutritionist, and provide at least one-third of the daily dietary recommendations set by the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
