Quote: Meals on Wheels are such a blessing to me. I appreciate everyone who helps make them possible – Juanita, Milton Quote: I don't have to worry anymore and Bill loves it. There couldn’t be a better place – for both of us. – Ursula, Pensacola Quote: There is no escaping aging issues. No one and no family is immune. If you or your family have not been affected, you will. Please give generously. C. Flack and Kathleen, Gulf Breeze Quote: I love being a Foster Grandparent. I almost fall to the ground every morning from the kids hugging me. - Queen, Pensacola Quote: Council on Aging of West Florida has been a big help to me. – Robert, Pensacola Quote: Thanks to the support groups, I know what is coming. Before, I didn’t. – Ray, Pace Quote: I volunteer with the Council on Aging of West Florida because I get a lot of satisfaction out of helping seniors, and making new friends!

Meals, Nutrition and Socialization

Eating right can be a challenge for anyone, but sometimes older adults need extra help with proper nutrition, whether at home or in a social environment. We offer two options for in-home meal assistances, Meals on Wheels and private-pay home delivered meals. In addition, we also operate numerous senior dining sites throughout Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties where individuals 60 and older (or accompanying a spouse 60 or older) can gather for meals, socialization and recreation.




Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels are delivered throughout Escambia and Santa Rosa Counties to qualifying seniors. These meals contain 1/3 of the recommended daily allowance (RDA) for adults and comply with Florida Department of Elder Affairs guidelines. Meal options are also available for special dietetic needs. Meals on Wheels is a government funded program and an assessment is required. For information on the assessment process and to apply for service, please contact the Elder Help line locally at (850) 494-7100 or toll free at 1-800-963-5337.

Private-Pay Home Delivered Meals

We also offer home delivered meal service to meet the short or long term needs of those who do not qualify for government funded meals. This customized service provides frozen meals to individuals of any age. The meals are prepared under the supervision of a registered dietician and each meal meets one-third of the recommended dietary allowance for senior adults

Both lunch/dinner meals and breakfast meals are available in packages of five or seven meals. Each lunch/dinner meal comes with a dessert, milk and bread. The cost per meal is $7.50, which includes delivery.

Meals are delivered once a week between the hours of 10:30 a.m. and 1:30 p.m. Once you enroll, we will call you to let you know the day of the week that meals are delivered in your area.

Senior Dining

For those who can and enjoy getting out for lunch, the Senior Dining Program is a neighborhood-based program which offers older citizens the opportunity to share their noon meal with others their age. Hot nutritious balanced meals are served to active adults 60 years and older at numerous convenient locations throughout Escambia and Santa Rosa counties. Meals are prepared fresh daily and contain one third of the required daily allowance (RDA) for adults and comply with the Florida Department of Elder Affairs Guidelines. In addition, participants have an opportunity to join in arts and crafts projects, play games, and socialize. Serving times and location hours vary by site.
