Community Dining Program

A nutritious, well-balanced, Japanese-style hot lunch is provided 5 days a week, Monday through Friday (except major holidays) in a communal-tables setting. The menu is carefully planned and prepared by our Nutritionist and staff to ensure each meal is healthy, nutritionally balanced and adequately proportioned for seniors. Please see current month’s menu.

Our weekday Community Dining services has oversight by San Francisco’s Office on Aging. Guidelines for participation and pricing are noted below.

Regular nutrition education presentations and information are also provided to assist participants in maintaining their health and well-being. Meals are provided on a first come first served basis. Reservations are taken for senior groups. Transportation is also available for seniors who are unable to drive or take public transportation.

I have been volunteering at Kimochi for more than 10 years. I come here like I’m going to work at the bank, so it makes me feel young again. Before my wife passed away, she brought me to Kimochi after I retired. I’ve been coming almost every day since. The staff and volunteers here are really nice—especially to newcomers.
