With the help of TIP's Model, we are combining local innovation to provide access to basic care for those throughout Santa Cruz County.

Meals will be prepared daily at our kitchen located in Downtown Santa Cruz using professional-grade, sterilized equipment that is held to the regulations of the Santa Cruz Health Department. Staff will deliver food directly to our customer's doorstep free of any charges. If you are not comfortable our staff delivering food to your home, Cruzian Catering is also offering free pickup every day from 9am-1pm at Extra Kitchen . We strive to continuously provide low sodium, low sugar, keto, and vegan friendly whole food options!

Limitations include 7 meals per person per order. 1 meal = appx. 1 lb. of food. Cruzian takes extra precautions by enforcing sanitation practices at the highest levels to ensure our community's safety.

Those eligible for "Free Meals for Elderly in Santa Cruz" Promotion include families with a person aged at least 65 years or older. Eligibility also includes families with small children susceptible to illness and those with preexisting medical conditions such as heart disease, diabetes, or lung disease.

Cruzian Catering as well as many other startup businesses have been greatly impacted from local government's precautions regarding the outbreak of COVID-19. This pandemic has left many people in the service industry without work and many elderly people vulnerable and without access to food.

With the help of our friends in the community, we can connect local products with those who are at risk/the most vulnerable and need our help. Thank you for supporting us, for helping those in need in our community, and for keeping local farms sustainable!
