Our Response to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)


SJCS is closely monitoring the COVID-19 issue in our state. We are following the recommendations of the CDC and have put important safeguards into place to protect the health of our vulnerable clients, as well as our staff and volunteers. One of these safeguards is to temporarily suspend our community dining programs, but to also establish an alternate plan for those meals. Please click here for important information about our response.

OVER 39,000


Our caring volunteers dedicate several hours every week to bringing food and comfort to older adults in their community. Together we’ve done a lot. But there’s always more to do.

OVER 8,000


We serve nutritious meals to thousands of older adults every day with a variety of options. Our meals meet one third of the daily nutrition requirements for older adults and provide 3 oz of protein, 2 servings of fruit/vegetables, whole grain baked product, dessert, and milk. 



We proudly serve our healthy meals to all homebound, older and disabled adults, regardless of immigration or refugee status, ethnicity/race, religion, sexual orientation, gender identity, or disability.


In addition to our home delivery service, we operate dozens of dining centers throughout Hillsborough county. We invite all older adults to come and enjoy fresh, healthy lunches at any of our congregate dining sites Monday through Friday.

“I had a hard time walking and had difficulty cooking my own meals. I am happy to see these caring people come to my door. The meals are very tasty and the people are friendly. This made my life more enjoyable.” Catherine, 82 years old



Statement on COVID-19 Risk of Cancellation or Transition to Virtual Race

Due to the uncertainty surrounding COVID-19 (coronavirus), there is a risk of cancellation for 5K races over the next several months. We are still accepting race registrations at this time but will   continue to monitor CDC and state recommendations regarding public gatherings and will update race status as information unfolds. The race committee has decided that in the event this year’s Step-Up 5K must be transitioned to a Virtual Race, we will offer the choice to participate in the race in that form, or refund all race registration fees with the exception of any online transactional fees paid to Run Sign Up (those average about $2.50 per registrant).

Registration for 2020 Step-Up is Open!
