Prepared Meals

community meals, bag meals, deliveries

There are quite a few resources for prepared hot and cold meals in the City of Alexandria, including community breakfasts, lunches, and evening meals, as well as bag meals to-go or delivered. Delivered prepared meals have eligibility requirements, and are strictly for seniors. However, community meals are open to all, no registration, proof of residency, or ID required. No one should have to go without a meal for a day. Ever.
