Nutrition is very important to the health of seniors. Self-Help for the Elderly promotes both an active and a healthy lifestyle for our seniors through many of our programs. That is why we partner with The San Francisco Department of Disability and Aging (DAS) to provide seniors with a healthy dining opportunity.

Through the CHAMPSS program, San Francisco seniors will receive meals from the designated restaurants during their service hours only. The dietitian-approved menu allows seniors to select their choice of a complete nutritious meal and beverage. Each meal includes: the main entrée, a drink (milk or orange juice), and a jello or fruit cup. Older adults aged 60 or older and their spouses are eligible to receive meals from the selected restaurants in San Francisco

To be qualified for this program, participants must attend an enrollment session and are then able to register from there. The suggested donation for a CHAMPSS meal is $5 per meal.

CHAMPSS was featured in Hyphen magazine. Click here to learn more about this program and how it’s helping seniors throughout San Francisco.
