For those receiving deliveries from Meals on Wheels Redwood Coast,  the schedule will match the Heritage Café hours in your community; McKinleyville deliveries will follow the Arcata schedule.

Those not able to dine in are encouraged to utilize one of the other HSRC senior dining options.  If homebound, Meals on Wheels Redwood Coast may be an option. If ineligible for Meals on Wheels, but unable to dine in, each Heritage Café will now offer Heritage To Go meals.  This option is only available to those who must rely on others for transportation and can’t utilize any other HSRC senior nutrition program option. Contact the site coordinator of the Heritage Café in your area to determine which meal service option is right for you.

HSRC also has a variety of  clinical and operations  job openings in numerous programs including Administration, Nutrition, Redwood Coast PACE, and Transportation.  Click here for details.
