Senior Meal Sites: Today the City and Philadelphia Corporation for Aging (PCA) announced meal distribution sites for older adults. A total of 23 sites are open for grab-and-go meals. Since this list is subject to change, older adults should always call each site first to be added to the list for meals, confirm pick up time, or to discuss other meal arrangements. Family members can pick up for the seniors.

Three Philadelphia Parks & Recreation older adult centers are among the list of sites offering grab-and-go meals for seniors. The three locations are Northeast, Mann, and Martin Luther King, Jr. older adult centers. These centers are distributing meals each Monday and Wednesday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. People will get two meals on Mondays and three meals on Wednesdays.

Recognizing that many older adults may have difficulty leaving their homes, family members may pick up meals, with prior arrangement at each site. Centers will also work with PCA to arrange for meals to be home delivered, if needed.

“PCA takes its responsibilities extremely seriously as an essential service for our consumers,” said Najja Orr, PCA president & CEO. “Since the initial stay-at-home order, our staff, volunteers and organizing partners have worked to keep our Meal Distribution Center open to provide vital meals to those in need. We will continue to do our absolute best so that seniors get the food they need during this crisis.”

A list of senior meal sites is included in the table below. An online map is also available.
