Big News!


Effective Jan. 1 2014 On The Go Senior Cafe will be changing its name to MEALS-ON-WHEELS. On July 1, 2011 People for People began administering the senior nutrition services in Yakima County.

People For People is a non-profit organization committed to serving people throughout Central and South Central Washington State since 1965. People For People provides transportation services for the general public and special needs population, employment and training services, Medicaid broker transportation and interpreter services and 2-1-1 Information referral services.

The consolidation of People For People services enable the senior nutrition program to partner our mission of promoting optimal health, quality of diet, and socialization opportunities for older Americans with People For People's mission by strengthening communities by providing resources and opportunities that empower people to lead self-sufficient and enriched lives.

In addition, People For People continues to offer Senior Dining Rooms, Meals on Wheels and all of our senior pet programs.
