There are a number of group dining sites throughout the County, and current sites are listed below. Older Americans Act (OAA) funded sites are indicated with an asterisk (*). Contact the San Mateo County Aging and Adult Services (1-800-675-8437) for information regarding home-delivered meals.

Where Older Adults Can Go for Nutritious Meals in San Mateo County

*OAA funded sites (marked with an *asterisk below) follow specific service delivery guidelines. The menus at the OAA sites are approved by Registered Dietitians to meet the U.S. Dietary Reference Intakes and are low in fat, sodium and cholesterol.

Services are available to individuals who are age 60 or over and the spouse of an eligible participant regardless of age.  Services may be available to a limited number of individuals who are:

  1. Individuals with disabilities under the age of 60 who reside in housing facilities occupied primarily by older individuals at which congregate nutrition services are provided
  2. A volunteer under the age of 60, if doing so will not deprive an older individual of a meal, and a disabled individual who resides at home with and accompanies an older individual who participates in the program.

The sites identified with an asterisk(*) are funded in part by the OAA, voluntary donations from program participants, fees from non-participants, and funding support from the host organization.  Suggested donation amounts for participants and guest fees are posted at each OAA site.

Contact each location for an up-to-date menu, days and hours of service, and general information about their programs.
