Home Delivered Meals

Home-Delivered Meals

Few things are as comforting as a knock on the door and a friendly face bearing a freshly prepared hot meal. The meals provide at least one-third of the recommended daily nutritional requirements, and are delivered by TCOA staff and volunteers who understand the importance of both the food and the visit to those who open the door.


Qualified candidates must:

  • Be 60 and older.
  • Live in Terrebonne Parish.
  • Be pre-qualified using the Governor's Office of Elderly Affairs' assessment tool.
  • Be homebound.
    • Meals will be provided to spouse or eligible caregiver residing with the client, if deemed to be in the best interest of the client.
    • Priority will be given to older persons with the greatest economic and/or social need, with particular attention to low-income minority and Native American individuals.
    • $1 donation per meal is encouraged, but not required.

For more information, please call (985) 868-7596.

Did you know?        

The Terrebonne Council on Aging's Home Delivered Meals program serves more than 650+ seniors daily, or more than 158,000 meals last year. This service provides a vital safety net and saves federal and state dollars by keeping the elderly out of nursing homes and avoid hospital stays which can come with staggering costs: A one-day hospital stay or a six-day nursing-home stay costs about the same as delivering a hot meal to a home bound senior each weekday for an entire year.
