Senior Dining & Home Delivered Meals

Friendship, Food & Fun

These programs are available to all persons age 60+ regardless of health status or income; however, in order to get meals delivered to your home, the individual must have an assessed need and agree to a telephone or an in-home assessment.

July Menu

Jefferson County operates five dining sites and nine home delivered meal routes serving residents of Jefferson County, age 60 and older, and their spouse. These meals provide a hot nutritious lunch available on a donation basis. Meals are served at most locations five days a week except on days that our office is closed. Johnson Creek and Ixonia meals are served three days a week.  We also offer contactless, curbside meal pick-up at three locations. Scroll down for a description of what each location currently provides.

HOME DELIVERED MEALS
If you are homebound and unable to attend a dining center, the Aging & Disability Resource Center of Jefferson County (ADRC) has home delivered meal routes that may offer an alternative way to receive a meal. An assessment for eligibility is necessary before meals can be provided. Please call the ADRC at (920) 674-8134 or 1 (866) 740-2372 for more information.

CURBSIDE MEAL CARRY-OUT
 
We offer contactless, curbside carry-out hot meals in Jefferson, Lake Mills and Palmyra. Reservations are required. Call the participating nutrition site by noon one day before you want to pick-up the meal. For Monday meals, please call by noon on Friday. Meals are on a donation basis and, to remain contactless, we will send a monthly donation statement to your home. Carry-out meal participants register once by completing the Jefferson County Nutrition Program Curbside Registration Form, available from the nutrition site.  A form is required for each participant receiving a meal. Registration is only required one time annually for each participant.

Food Pantries


Food Pantries are non-profit hunger relief sites that receive food donations to distribute to those in need. Food Pantries are found in most communities within Jefferson County. They rely on donors and volunteers to carry out day-to-day operations. A Food Pantry's sole purpose is to help those in need.
