Senior enjoying lunchThe Office of Senior Nutrition strives to provide quality food services for the elders of Jersey City. We provide food services such as Meals On Wheels (MOW) and Congregate Meals at Senior Lunch Sites.  Meals On Wheels is available to homebound/bedridden seniors who are unable to provide for their own nutritional needs.  For more active seniors that are not homebound, we provide the Congregate Meals Program at Senior Lunch Sites city-wide.  Congregate Meal Sites provide seniors with an opportunity to gather together in one place to enjoy a hot meal accompanied by other members of the community.


Through our Nutrition Grant programs, the City operates an additional nine Senior Citizen Nutrition sites from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. weekdays. These sites serve about 265 meals a day to seniors, five days a week, 52 weeks a year.  Click here for a list of senior lunch sites.
Jersey City’s Senior Lunch Program enables seniors to socialize and enjoy each other’s company and participate in activities that revitalize the spirit within all of us.
