Food Assistance for Seniors
Seniors who need food can get help. Programs provide a hot meal or canned foods, fresh vegetables and bread.
C.C. Cafés provide nutritious meals in a café style to all adults over age 60. Some activities and nutrition education also are a part of meal time fun. There is no charge to adults age 60+ for a meal. A voluntary and confidential contribution is requested to offset the cost of the meal. For more information, Contact at 925-646-9137 or to make a reservation call your local C.C. Café. Download the attached PDFs to learn more about C.C. Café’s in your area: East County, Central County, and West County
