As a result of the Covid-19 pandemic, senior citizens have become the most vulnerable population. As many senior centers and other facilities close or drastically change procedures to distribute food, the following resources are serving our seniors across the nation.

All resources provided here were collected from church, food pantry, government, and senior center websites. Resources are organized by states, with some of the sites targeting food insecurity due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We are also including resources from national programs addressing hunger of senior citizens such as Meals on Wheels, Agency on Aging, and Feeding America.

Our team at Caravan Studios is continuously compiling meal resources for seniors as they become available. We welcome your input if you are aware of sites that are not yet listed, below. Please create an account and add sites directly to this page.
