Dine at Home Sacramento Meal Program for Seniors
The Dine at Home Sacramento program provides prepared and delivered meals for qualifying adults age 60 and older. The program is designed to minimize exposure to COVID-19 for high-risk individuals age 60+ by reducing their need to shop in public venues for food.
Dine at Home Sacramento is operated by Sacramento County Agency on Aging/Area 4 and funded through the federal Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act (CARES Act). Dine at Home Sacramento is a temporary program during the COVID-19 pandemic; the program will end when funds are exhausted.
The program provides 14 meals per week at no cost for qualifying participants. The meals are prepared and delivered by local participating restaurants two to three times per week. To qualify for the program, participants must be age 60 or older, and live in the City of Folsom, or in the unincorporated area of Sacramento County, or in the cities of Galt or Isleton. Individuals who currently receive home-delivered meals from Meals on Wheels by ACC are not eligible; however, those who did not qualify for the Great Plates Delivered program may meet the eligibility requirements for the Dine at Home Sacramento program.
Adults age 60+ who live in Folsom and want to enroll in the free meal program can call 2-1-1 and ask to be referred to Dine at Home Sacramento. Callers can learn more about the program and will be asked a series of questions to determine their eligibility for the program, and the information callers provide will remain confidential. The 2-1-1 phone service is staffed 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
