What We Serve

We strive to make meals that are far from the institutional approach that others might expect from such a high-volume food production facility. In fact, our team works hard to achieve a home-cooked meal experience and to offer food choices that appeal to clients. Menus are planned a month in advance, with adjustments made based on the availability of new and fresh ingredients as they become available. Each nutritious meal—of the 3,000 on average prepared each day—is “made from scratch” for appreciative recipients in diverse locales. Through advanced effort and expertise from our professional staff, client surveys, USDA and Virginia Department of Aging nutritional guidelines, each meal progresses from concept to reality in the 5,400-square-foot production facility.

Meals on Wheels helped me to gain my strength after having a stroke. The volunteer’s smiles help a lot – I appreciate their concern.
