Healthy Food Assistance

The Healthy Food Assistance program provides older persons with high quality, tasty, nutritionally sound, and diverse meal choices. The Congregate Meal and Home Delivered Meal Programs are designed for older individuals, age 60 and older, to live independently, have better health, and reduced isolation. Good nutrition is an important part of living a healthy lifestyle for seniors. Healthy Food Assistance is available to low-income, Broward County families and seniors.  Learn more about how to qualify for Home Delivered Meals and Congregate Meal Sites by calling the Aging and Disability Resource Center Helpline at 954-745-9779.

Home Delivered Meals

Home delivered meals provide eligible persons with nutritionally sound, high quality, tasty meals in their homes. Emphasis is placed on serving elders who are at greatest economic and social need, low-income minorities, and those who are at nutritional risk. We provide year-round home delivered meals through our contracted meal providers, Offerdahl's Off-the-Grill, Sterling Food Group, Sushi Maki-Medley Food Group, and United HomeCare. There is a choice of specialty meals such as puree, gluten-free, Kosher, and other options if you are on a specialized diet. In addition, there are culturally diverse food choices such as Cuban, Italian, and other options available. 

To be eligible for our Home Delivered Meal program you must be age 60 or older and homebound or a caregiver living in a home with a senior who is homebound. Please contact the Aging & Disability Resource Center Helpline at 954.745.9779 for assistance in applying for Home Delivered Meals or email us at If you email please provide, your name, address, and phone number and one of our Information and Referral Professionals will call you back.

Client Reviews on the New Home Delivered Meals Providers

"I'm so happy to be getting real food that I can eat and food that is not loaded with chemicals. I love the new food and it is really exciting to have delicious new meals.  - George A.

"The meals are much better. In the past my brother Mark would hesitate to eat the meals and now he is eager to eat more. He is glad to have the milk that comes with the meals." - Francine regarding her brother Mark's new meals.

"Thank you, the new meals are delicious! I used to have to tolerate the old meals and now I can sit down and enjoy my meals. The food quality is much better and even the rice is fluffy and tasty and not mushy. I shared with my friends that the news meals are so much better." - Ora R.

ADRC Emergency Meal Program

We also provide year-round Home Delivered Meals through our contracted meal providers, Sterling Food Group and Medley Food Group. To qualify for these meals you must also call the Aging and Disability Resource Center Helpline at 954-745-9779 to become qualified. 

Congregate Meal Sites

Congregate meals offer nutritional and social benefits and are a healthy and convenient option for anyone 60 years old or older. The Area Agency of Aging of Broward County is looking to provide elders with high quality, tasty, nutritionally sound, culturally diverse meal choices and to encourage participation, socialization and satisfaction with the meals received in a congregate setting. In addition to the advantages of a healthy meal that requires no shopping, preparation, or cleanup, every site offers social activities. Seniors can improve their health by eating healthier foods and interacting with others.

Well-balanced meals are available through our contracted vendors, Flipany and Sterling Food Group, at Congregate Meal Site locations throughout Broward County. Review the list of Congregate Meal Sites below for a location near you. Call the individual sites for more information and current meal times. Transportation to many meal sites is free.

Nutritional education is provided to participants, and donations are gratefully accepted.
