FAQ

Organizational Questions

Why did Meals on Wheels by ACC take over the entire Sacramento County Senior Nutrition Program on July 1, 2010?
The County Sacramento provided senior meals for 30+ years, but could no longer afford to run the program after June 30, 2010 due to the County’s dire fiscal situation.

ACC Senior Services was made aware of the possibility of the program shutting down, and determined that it was feasible to take over the program as it fits the ACC long-term role as a senior community service provider, and that it was the right thing to do despite the considerable challenge.

A new not-for-profit organization called “Meals on Wheels by ACC” was created to operate after July 1, 2010.

The menu is on a six-week rotation with different meal items each day of the week. Menus are reviewed and updated, taking into consideration participant feedback.

Do you provide special dietary meals?
At this time, we do not provide special dietary meals. However, the monthly menu does indicate meals that are high in sodium, and each meal is clearly marked with nutrition information to make it easier to fit into your daily diet.

Do I have to pay for meals?
There is a suggested donation of $2 per meal received. However, we respect participants who are unable to make a donation, and a donation is never required to receive a meal for persons aged 60 years or better. There is a required fee for guests under the age of 60; please call the café for guest fee costs.
