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. Our 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 Our Meals on Wheels Program:
- We ensure that you receive nutritious meals delivered to your door by our volunteers.
- There are hot and frozen meals options available to you.
- Our meals are offered at an affordable price.
- You can create an automatic meal delivery plan so you do not have to remember to call every order into the office.
- All our Meals on Wheels containers may be used to heat it up later.
- We can accommodate several diet types.
- Service options are flexible, you can receive Meals on Wheels on a short-term basis while you recuperate or on a long-term basis so that you can stay healthy by eating properly in your own home.
