Currently, Indonesia and the whole world are experiencing a corona virus pandemic or covid_19. The elderly are the group most at risk for contracting COVID_19. The purpose of community service is to increase the knowledge of the elderly about balanced nutrition in the face of the Covid 19 pandemic. The method of community service in the form of education and counseling uses WhatsApp (WA) media for the elderly or elderly families. The target group is the elderly or elderly families who are in the Working Area of ​​the Sapta Taruna Health Center Pekanbaru City. Telephone number/WA data for elderly or elderly families is needed to contact the elderly to participate as participants in educational and counseling activities. The material provided is balanced nutrition to increase body resistance in the face of the COVID-19 pandemic.
