Healthy Food Assistance

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.

Home Delivered Meals

To be eligible for our Home Delivered Meal program you must be age 60 or older or a caregiver living in a home with a senior. 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.

Once qualified you will receive meals each week delivered to your home through our ADRC Emergency Meals Program or the Meals on Wheels program. The ADRC Emergency Meal Program is a temporary meal program that is here to help you if you are homebound or if you are 150% below the FPL and are in need of support.  Meals are provided by local restaurants and caterers and there is a choice of a variety of meals such as puree, kosher, gluten-free, Cuban, American variety, and other specialty meals.

We also provide year-round Home Delivered Meals through our contracted meal provider, Meals on Wheels of South Florida. There is also a choice of specialty meals such as puree and kosher if you are on a specialized diet. To qualify for these meals you must also call the Aging and Disability Resource Center Helpline at 954-745-9779 to become qualified. Participants in this program are homebound.

Congregate Meal Sites

Congregate meals offer nutritional and social benefits and are a healthy and convenient option for anyone 60 years old or older. 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 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.
