Senior Nutrition & Transportation
Plumas County Senior Programs:
We serve meals at 4 different Nutrition Sites as well as homebound meal delivery from 4 sites. There are roughly 18 employees that prepare and distribute those meals including Site Managers, Cooks, Assistant cooks, drivers, and extra-help staff. The budget for Senior Nutrition comes from a variety of sources.
The Public Health Agency's nutrition program encourages all senior citizens to enjoy lunch at their local nutrition site - open from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm. If you are 60 years of age or older, or you are married to someone 60 years of age or older, join us for a nutritious meal and fellowship, education, entertainment, and fun. If you are a home-bound senior, you may be eligible to receive a meal delivered every weekday. Call your local site to find out how to sign up.
