Meals on Wheels

Food is a basic need, a life necessity.  What we eat or don’t eat affects our mental, emotional and physical well-being.  The Meals on Wheels program promotes health and independence by providing quality and affordable meals to:

  • seniors living alone
  • adults with disabilities who are unable to shop for groceries or cook for themselves
  • those being discharged from an area hospital with limited/no help available during their recovery

Benefits of this Program:

  • nutritious meal per delivery
  • affordable price *
  • social contact with volunteer who check ins on the client
  • automatic meal plan (you do not have to remember to call every order in)
  • meal containers: may be used in microwave or oven, disposable
  • accommodate several diet types
  • short term service options for:
    • caregiver relief
    • recuperation
  • long term service options:
    • to keep our clients independent in their own home
