Congregate
Meals

The Senior Nutrition Program provides congregate and home-delivered meals to eligible seniors in Bee, Brooks, Jim Wells, and San Patricio Counties. Meals are approved by a registered dietitian and then prepared to meet 1/3 of the Recommended Dietary Allowance to ensure good health.

Senior Congregate Meals

The Senior Congregate Meals Program provides services through a network of 11 senior congregate sites. The program promotes socialization, good nutrition, and helps seniors maintain their independence. Round-trip transportation is available to congregate sites, grocery stores, medical appointments, and/or leisure trips. At the Senior Congregate sites, activities focus on the health and well-being of seniors.  Social and recreational activities vary by center, but may include activities such as bingo, chair exercises, dominoes, line-dancing, and sewing.  Voluntary contributions are encouraged to defray costs and reduce wait-list. Suggested amount is $1.00 per day. 

Senior Meals on Wheels

The Senior Meals on Wheels Program delivers nourishing meals daily to seniors who are no longer able to shop and cook for themselves while allowing them to live independently in their own home. When meals are delivered, a CACOST staff person checks in with the senior to monitor their safety and well-being.

  • Persons 60 years and older
