New program to provide hundreds of meals to seniors, adults with disabilities across Central Florida

ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. — Seniors and adults with disabilities who are in need can apply for a free meal service in four Central Florida counties created in response to a pilot program created specifically for the pandemic.

Meals of Love kicks off this weekend with 200 meals being provided in Orange, Brevard, Osceola and Seminole counties.


“The local restaurants are preparing meals and, by that way, there are dollars that are being infused into that restaurant industry, one that has been hit so hard,” said Karla Radka with Senior Resource Alliance.

Seniors can apply by calling Meals of Love at 321-253-4430, or visiting MealsofLove.org. Tech-savvy seniors can text MEALSOFLOVE to 94253.

In addition, Meals of Love has also created new delivery job opportunities for those in need.
