Meals for the Elderly

Seniors at least 60 years old and homebound can receive free meals at home through the Meals on Wheels Program. In addition, seniors that are not homebound are eligible to receive meals at one of the 21 locations throughout Miami-Dade County.

  • Meals on Wheels

    Eligible Meals on Wheels participants receive seven free frozen meals each week at their residence, along with fresh fruit, milk and other food items. The meals are delivered between 8 a.m. and 5 p.m. on weekdays.

    Recipients must be at least 60 years old with a disability or homebound. Individuals under age 60 with disabilities who live with an eligible recipient, and are dependent for care, can also receive meals.

    Spouses are eligible without any age restrictions or medical conditions.

    Call 786-469-4707 to determine eligibility.

  • Meals at Senior Centers

    There are 21 locations offering meals for seniors. Eligible participants receive daily nutritionally-balanced hot meals, nutrition education, counseling, transportation and a wide variety of educational, cultural, recreational activities and health-wellness services.

    Free meals are served Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m.

    Recipients must not be homebound. Spouses are eligible without any age restrictions or medical conditions.
