Congregate Meals

A congregate meal is a nutritionally balanced meal served at each of the City's 15 senior centers. Congregate meals are primarily for independent residents. 

There is no charge for meals for individuals ages 60+ or disabled, however we do ask for contributions. Contributions are used to fund and maintain the meal program. All contributions are confidential and are accepted on a daily, weekly or monthly basis. The city of Phoenix hopes that if you can contribute, you will. However, an inability to contribute will not prevent you from receiving a meal.
Center participants under the age of 60 and/or not disabled, will be required to pay a nominal fee for each meal. For more information on the program, please contact a senior center.

Home Delivered Meals

The home delivered meal program is a referral based program which prepares and delivers nutritionally balanced meals to home bound Phoenix residents aged 60+ or disabled. To qualify for this program, residents must contact the Senior Helpline for enrollment.


Senior centers are open Monday through Friday from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. For more information, call 602-262-7379.
