Senior Nutrition Program

Each week the Senior Nutrition Program provides seven frozen meals to enrolled participants at Senior Meals Sites. These are located at the Damascus, Holiday Park, Long Branch, Schweinhaut, Wheaton, North Potomac, White Oak, and Rockville Senior Centers, and at Bohrer Park.

Participants can either pick up food on their own or ask a friend/family/volunteer to do it for them. In some cases, meals can be delivered by Recreation Department staff.

There is no fixed price for the meals, but the program hopes and requests that participants make a voluntary contribution to help fund the service for others.

County residents age 60 and over are eligible for this program. Spouses of participants or individuals with a disability living with a participant are also eligible.

Contact the senior center closest to you to see if the program can accept new requests. See more information about the Senior Nutrition Program, including contact information for each center.
