Helping Seniors in Need During the COVID-19 Pandemic
In response to the Covid-19 pandemic, the Center for Successful Aging has become involved in two senior food programs in the greater Santa Barbara area.
If you are interested in these services, please contact us at: 805-898-8080
Senior Outreach Program
Delivery of groceries and household items to seniors homebound due to the pandemic.
The Senior Outreach Program is a consortium of 8 non-profit agencies countywide who have collaborated to provide groceries and household goods for seniors who are homebound due to the COVID-19 pandemic and health guidelines.
The Center for Successful Aging is pleased to be the major provider of delivery services to seniors on the south coast, Santa Barbara and Goleta.
The Center has two caseworkers for both English and Spanish speakers.
Caseworkers interview seniors, determine their needs and then pass on the needs to the delivery team.
Deliveries are made on average 3 times a month making use of Food Bank supplies and groceries and supplies that are purchased and given to seniors.
This program is being funded by a local consortium of donors, foundations and business donations.
If you need assistance with groceries and household goods, call our office today: 805-898-8080
Hot Meals Program
Delivery of hot meals to seniors homebound due to the pandemic.
Complementing the Senior Outreach Program, the Hot Meal Program helps seniors who are either financially or physically unable to make their own meals. In collaboration with the Area Agency for Aging, this program began in late May and is offered to seniors 60 years of age and older.
Hot meals are delivered five days a week
Meals are provided by a local restaurant
Each delivery includes an entree, salad, fruit and milk
Currently this program is not accepting new enrollees. We are continuing to seek additional funding to expand this program.
