Senior Meals

The Attleboro Norton YMCA is proud to offer free meals for seniors. The intent of this program is to support those seniors who struggle to have hot evening meals due to financial constraints, mobility constraints, health issues, and transportation issues.

Meals are available on Monday, Tuesday, and Wednesday evenings. Register for a curbside pickup time slot or for at-home delivery. (For at-home delivery, meals will arrive 4:45-5:30 pm. At-home delivery only available to homes in Attleboro or Norton.) Please be sure to register each person who will need a meal, so we prepare the appropriate number of meals for you. To register, click on the link below or call (508) 222-7422.
