Pasco County Elderly Nutrition/Meals on Wheels Program operates eight congregate dining sites in Pasco County. Elderly Nutrition also delivers meals under two types of programs to the homes of elders and other qualified individuals. Home Delivered Meals, funded in part by the Older Americans Act, provide meals for those who are age 60 or older, frail and home-bound, regardless of income. Meals on Wheels is a direct customer-billed meal service for anyone of any age needing a home-delivered meal. There is a one-time $10 registration fee for one person, $15 for two and meals cost $6. Donations toward meal costs are appreciated. To get information on any of these meal options or to volunteer, call (727) 834-3340 in West Pasco; (352) 521-5174 in East Pasco; or (813) 929-1231 in Central Pasco.
