Pasco County operates nine congregate dining sites that offer a nutritious meal and various program activities. There is no charge for the meals, but donations are requested. Additionally, Pasco County delivers meals to homes of the elderly through two programs. The Elderly Nutrition Program meal is offered for a donation only. The Meals on Wheels program requires a registration fee and $6 per meal. All meals include low-fat milk. 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.
