Meals on Wheels Orange County delivers a nutritious lunch to 23 senior centers throughout central and north Orange County. Neighborhood places where more than 1,200 active older adults come to eat out, socialize around a nutritious meal served by volunteers and staff, meet people with shared interests, and join in other activities the center and the community offers.
The Lunch Café is open to anyone 60 or older. Every contribution we receive helps Meals on Wheels Orange County deliver meals to Orange County senior centers. Suggested contribution for lunch $3.00, but everyone is welcome, even if a contribution is not possible. Guests under 60 can enjoy lunch for a fee of $5.00.
Poor nutrition is especially prevalent among older adults who live alone or are on limited incomes in Orange County. Our Lunch Café program is vital to these vulnerable older adults in defeating poor nutrition and its dire health impacts. Meals are planned and certified by a dietitian to meet one-third of the daily nutritional needs, based on FDA guidelines.
