Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada and Washoe County Senior Nutrition Program: A Public-Private Partnership

In an effort to provide quality service and keep up with a local increase in the need for senior meal services, Washoe County and Catholic Charities of Northern Nevada are proud to offer the collaborative Senior Nutrition Program, to include both the congregate meal and home-delivered Meals on Wheels programs. By combining efforts, we hope to reduce meal production costs and provide more meals to homebound residents and senior citizens. This partnership allows the two groups to serve an estimated 400,000 meals per year to local seniors.

Senior Nutrition Services

Congregate Meal Program: Lunch in a group setting; socialize with other participants while enjoying a healthy meal. The program provides one meal per day to seniors 60+ and qualified individuals (spouse of a senior, disabled living at a nutrition site, or disabled dependent on a senior). A hot meal or fresh salad is provided Monday through Friday at ten senior meal locations. Monthly menus are available online or at each meal site location. With the exception of the Washoe County Senior Center, reservations must be made by 9:00 AM on the desired day. Individuals wishing to enjoy a fresh salad in place of a hot meal are required to sign up in person or by phone at the desired meal location by 9:00 AM that day.

Home Delivered Meals: Provides delivery of meals to homebound seniors 60+ who are unable to participate in the Washoe County Senior Services Congregate Meal program due to an illness or a disability. Meals provided are in accordance with established dietary guidelines and food safety standards. The suggested voluntary contribution is $2 per meal. Self addressed stamped envelopes are provided by the meal delivery drivers for contributions to be mailed to Washoe County Senior Services.
