Seniors can enjoy a healthy meal in a convivial setting at the El Monte Jack Crippen Multipurpose Senior Center Monday through Friday at 11:30 am. The program offers a well-balanced hot meal to individuals aged 60 and older and their spouses. Meals are prepared with no salt added and with ingredients lower in saturated fat and cholesterol. Additional considerations include using non-fat milk in puddings and creamed dishes and soups; using canola oil when oil is called for; using egg substitute in egg dishes, and canned fruit in light syrup.
Monday through Friday at 11:30 a.m., meals are served on a first-come-first-served basis.
This program is offered to eligible home-bound residents who may be unable, because of age, infirmity, or other circumstances, to prepare an adequate meal independently.
Caring volunteers deliver a frozen and well-balanced meal to participants' doorstep Monday and Wednesday between 8:30 am - 10:00 am. The cost is $2.00 per meal and the program serves the cities of El Monte and South El Monte. For additional information on the Meals on Wheels Program, please contact (626) 580-2210.
