Home Delivered Meals

Meals from Meal Sites or Senior Centers

If you normally take meals at a congregate meal site or senior center, and that facility has closed, you will receive home-delivered meals until your regular facility reopens.

Even though some facilities are closed for service, staff is there to take calls and answer your questions.

Elderly and Veterans Services

Broward County’s Elderly and Veterans Services Division is open and operating, but has replaced in-person home visits with telephone contacts. Broward County is working closely with the Area Agency on Aging of Broward and other community providers to address the needs of seniors every day, but most especially through this time of crisis.
