Senior Action offering FREE meals to anyone over the age of 60

Senior Action, a non-profit organization devoted to keeping seniors active, healthy, and engaged in meaningful activities, is now handing out meals to ANYONE over the age of 60 who would like them.

You do not have to be a Senior Action member to participate, and meal distribution is in no way tied to financial need or any other criteria. This is simply a community effort to help people over the age of 60 avoid going to grocery stores and other public places to get food amid Coronavirus concerns.

Here’s how the meal distribution works:

  • Meals are handed out – drive-thru style – at seven locations across Greenville County

    • Senior Action HQ (50 Directors Drive – just off Orchard Park)

    • Simpsonville Activity Center

    • Slater-Marietta

    • Berea Community Center

    • Long Branch Baptist Church

    • Pleasant Valley Connection

    • Greer Needmore Center

  • You must call ahead to reserve your meals (864-467-3660)

    • When you call to reserve your meals, a Senior Action staff member will help you find the distribution location closest to you

  • Pick-up times: Monday, Wednesday and Friday between 11:30am-12pm

    • You’ll get two meals on Monday and Wednesday, and three meals on Friday (one meal for every day of the week)

If you are unable to pick up your own food, you can send someone to pick it up for you. But Senior Action does request you call to reserve your own meals. Please help us spread the word about this, and offer to come pick up food for your senior neighbors, parents, grandparents, church members, etc. We want to feed as many seniors in Greenville County as we possibly can!

Senior Action is also offering a prescription pick-up service for people who need prescriptions picked up, but don’t feel comfortable going or can’t get to the pharmacy. Please call to request that service as well.
