Sierra Senior Services

Distributing hot, sealed, take-home meals at the Truckee Donner Senior Apartments (10040 Estates Drive, Truckee), weekdays between 12-12:45 pm to seniors 60 years of age and older. There are no facilities at the location to eat the meal, so plan to take the meal with you. Suggested $5 donation per meal, but no one will be turned away.

The Town is also providing $10,000 in funding to the Sierra Senior Services to support the distribution of meals to Truckee seniors who are house-bound due to the Governor’s order.  Volunteer drivers distribute hot, ready-to-eat meals mid-day Monday through Friday.  They currently serve 35 Truckee residents, however; numbers have been growing at a rate of 14% per week since the beginning of March.  Based on that, they anticipate serving an additional 30 Truckee seniors over the next 6 weeks. That’s a total of 65 seniors over the next 6 weeks that this Town funding will support.  All seniors over 60 years of age are eligible, and more information can be found at Sierra Seniors.
