Senior Centers and Hot Meals

Senior Centers and 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.

The AAAs administer senior centers across the state and provide a wide variety of services, including:

  • Assessments and program referrals
  • Home-delivered meals
  • Health insurance counseling
  • Ombudsman services and legal assistance
  • Protective services
  • Transportation

In 2011-12, the Lottery contributed more than $286 million to the 52 Area Agencies on Aging. These funds helped the AAAs to provide more than 8.6 million meals served at senior centers and delivered to seniors' homes. On average last year, the Pennsylvania Lottery helped provide 23,700 hot meals for older residents, every day.
