About Our Meals

The Truckee-North Tahoe Meals on Wheels program helps local seniors live independently at home as long as possible.

What if I have dietary restrictions?

Our Home Delivery Meal Coordinator will work with you to try to accommodate your needs.

What happens if you can’t deliver my meal?

Sierra Senior Services delivers a meal in advance of a storm if there is a threatening system coming through the Sierras. Shelf stable food is also distributed several times a year for our participants to keep on hand for emergencies.

Meals on Wheels is a voluntary contribution program and participants contribute as they are able.  A voluntary contribution of $6 per meal is welcomed.

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 involved). 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 and the California Department of Aging. Any incident or concern that indicates an unsatisfactory resolution may involve follow-up action.
STEP 4: For California Department of Aging/Agency on Aging/Area 4 Programs
If dissatisfied with the results of Sierra Senior Services’ review, the complainant may send a written statement, including the results of our review, to AAA/Area 4 at: 1401 El Camino Avenue, 4th Floor; Sacramento, CA 95815
