Seniors First

Overview

Seniors First

Seniors First provides a hot, healthy lunch five days a week to seniors age 60 and over at seven Senior Café locations throughout Placer County including Auburn, Lincoln, Rocklin and Roseville. Our Senior Cafés are lively gathering places that help maintain our clients' sense of community and connectedness. Approximately 350 meals are served each month at the Rocklin Café, which is located in an easily accessible location at the Rolling Oaks Apartments.


PLEASE NOTE: Seniors First is concerned about what the spread of Coronavirus (COVID-19) could mean for the senior community we serve and has made the decision to temporarily close our congregate Senior Cafés as a precautionary measure effective Tuesday, March 10, 2020 for dine-in services.

While the community cafés will be closed for meal service, we will continue to provide your daily meals on a take-out basis. You may stop by your regular café location to pick up a meal to take home. (Please reserve your meal 24 hours in advance). Seniors First is also still offering meal delivery services through Meals on Wheels.

The safety of our clients and volunteers remains our highest priority. We will continue to monitor news and information from the experts in disease control and will resume café meal services when we feel it is safe to do so.

Coronavirus Crisis Doubles Need for Meals on Wheels Volunteers

The COVID-19 crisis has shone a spotlight on just how quickly people can find themselves without food. Applications for meal delivery from Seniors First, Placer County’s only senior-focused service organization and provider of Meals on Wheels, have more than doubled in recent weeks.

Over 400 clients are served in Placer County per day through Meals on Wheels. Many of Seniors First’s volunteer delivery drivers, some seniors themselves, have been sidelined due to COVID restrictions which has dramatically increased the need for additional volunteers.
