Sierra Senior Services, serving at-risk individuals 60 years of age or older in the Truckee/North Lake Tahoe area since 2001, provides home-delivered meals by caring and dedicated community volunteers Monday through Friday. Volunteers bring food and friendship along with a daily wellness check to isolated seniors.
Meals are prepared in our kitchen and provide 1/3 of the minimum daily requirements for older adults. ALL are low in sodium, cholesterol and fat and are approved by a registered dietician.
We serve seniors from Donner Summit up Highway 89 to Hirschdale and from Incline Village to Tahoma on the West Shore.Two-thirds of our seniors are home bound, 83% live alone, 68% are renters, 52% are disabled, 75% are over the age of 75.
