Local Services, Senior Centers & Hot Meals

Pennsylvania's 52 Area Agencies on Aging, or AAAs, cover all 67 counties and serve as the local representatives for the Pennsylvania Department of Aging.

In 2012-13, the Lottery contributed more than $248 million to Area Agencies on Aging across Pennsylvania.

These funds helped to provide 8.3 million meals served at senior centers and delivered to seniors’ homes. Lottery funds helped provide more than 22,700 hot meals for older Pennsylvanians, every day.
