Meals are provided between 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m., five days a week, at local community centers in Houston and Harris County.

More than 4,201 individuals received meals at a congregate site in 2018. In addition to meals, a congregate setting offers older adults a chance to participate in evidenced based programs and encourages social engagement that promotes their overall well-being.

Transportation to Congregate Meal Sites

To reduce food insecurity and ensure access to nutritious meals, we provide transportation to and from congregate meal sites for eligible older adults. In 2018, we provided 88,000 trips to 454 individuals.
