Senior Nutrition

Meal Services

The City of Las Cruces Senior Nutrition Program offers Congregate and Home Delivered Meals. We provide wholesome mid-day meals to seniors 60 years of age and older and their spouses for a suggested donation of $2.50. Those age 59 years and below are able to eat as a guest for the price of $7.50.

Our Mission is to provide our guests with nutritious, appetizing meals at our Congregate Meal locations or to deliver the same meal to them through the Home Delivered Meal program.


All meals meet federal and state guidelines which are reviewed and approved by a Registered Dietitian to ensure they provide the minimum 1/3rd of the daily nutrients and calories as defined by the United States Department of Agriculture.

Meals are prepared with no sodium, fat, or sugar added to them. Check out this month’s menu (PDF) or the Senior Messenger newsletter (PDF) and reserve your meal today.

Make a Reservation

Please call our reservation line at 575-528-3012 by 1 p.m. the day before you want to eat. You can also email your meal reservations. New consumers can download and print an Eligible Visitor Intake Form (JPG) to start the registration process for Congregate Meals.

The short form is intended for consumers who want to try out the meals, or who are visiting from out-of-town. For continued service, a full registration form must be completed by a Case Manager at the meal site.

Stop by any of our centers for more information. We look forward to serving you.
