About Our Meals

The Truckee-North Tahoe Meals on Wheels program helps local seniors live independently at home as long as possible. Freshly prepared meals are delivered daily to seniors who have a medical need for nutritious meals. Our meals are freshly prepared in our kitchen under the leadership of Chef David Lutz.

Congregate Dining Option

In addition to our Home Delivered Meals we offer a congregate dining opportunity on weekdays between 12:00 and 12:45 at the Truckee Donner Senior Apartments (10040 Estates Drive; Truckee). This lunch service is available to anyone and the diner does not need to meet any eligibility requirements. Those over 60 are asked to contribute $5 per meal. Those under 60 will be asked to pay $8 for their meal. The congregate diners follow the same menu as the Home Delivered Meals participants.

Meal Participant Feedback

At Sierra Senior Services, it is important that our seniors continue to find the meal program both satisfactory and helpful for them to age strong and live long! Our volunteers and staff are dedicated each day to provide quality food and reliable services.

If you have any concerns you would like to share with us, please write out your comments and return to our office or give to your volunteer driver. We will follow up to ensure both a timely response and recommended resolution. In addition, we welcome positive feedback regarding the meals, service delivery and benefits of the program. You may contact the agency’s Executive Director, Sharon Romack directly by calling 530-550-7600 or emailing sharon@sierraseniors.org. Here is the process we use for resolving issues that may come up:

STEP 1: Meal Participant Provides Comments and Concerns

Your comments should be as detailed as possible (including dates, meals and individuals). Comments should be written by you. If communication is received over the phone by Sierra Senior Services, a staff member will repeat the comments back to you for accuracy.

STEP 2: Response to the Meal Participant

You will be contacted within five business days. If a conversation about the incident or concern is done over the phone, this communication will be based upon the incident report. This step will be approved by the Executive Director.

STEP 3: Resolution

This step will clearly define a resolution of the reported incident or concern. The resolution will also reflect that you agree with the results. Final resolution will be reported to the Sierra Senior Services Board of Directors. Any incident or concern that indicates an unsatisfactory resolution may involve follow up action.
