Good Nutrition and Socialization Make a Big Difference
Our Charlotte County services are focused on nutritious meals and social engagement, home delivered meals and supportive aging. Hunger is a huge issue in Charlotte County. For many, a visit to one of our dining sites is the only healthy meal of the day, as well as their only social connection. Check out Services for details about all of our programs.

SFC dining sites in Lee County are currently closed due to COVID-19. Enjoy a meal in a friendly social setting for the 60+ crowd at our five dining sites in Port Charlotte, Grove City, Harbour Heights, Rotonda West and Punta Gorda. In addition to a nutritious lunch, you can participate in healthy aging activities, including cards and games and educational talks. Dining sites are open five days a week from 10 am to 1 pm. and a donation of $3 is suggested to help cover the cost of the meals. While no one is denied a meal if unable to pay, the contribution helps us provide more meals for older adults in Charlotte County, where the need is great.

Home Delivered Meals
Nutritious meals delivered to your door can make all the difference in the world if you become unable to cook for yourself or if you simply want to be assured of a healthy meal. Many people find it difficult to shop, navigate the store aisles or decide what to buy on a limited budget. Our home delivered meals are developed by a licensed registered dietician to meet one-third of the recommended daily nutritional requirements for older adults. If you are interested in receiving home-delivered meals, call the Elder Helpline at 866.413.5337.
