Meals on Wheels
Our caring Meals on Wheels volunteers provide daily, nutritious home-delivered meals and a friendly, safety and security check to eligible homebound neighbors who cannot shop or cook for themselves. These neighbors include seniors, the disabled, or chronically ill adults under the age of 60. They may receive meals short term, while recovering from an illness or surgery, or long term, to assist them while they remain safely and independently in their homes. The services we provide help ensure the continued health and well-being of over 1,800 elderly and homebound citizens in our community.
From packages of comfort food for a patient undergoing cancer treatment, to flu shots and nutritional supplements, or even food for the pets that bring joy and companionship to their owners, Meals on Wheels brings more than food to our deserving clients. Last year, we prepared and delivered more than 337,000 meals—customized to a variety of health needs—and related services that kept our neighbors in need safe, comfortable, and living in their own homes. Clients also benefit from the safety check and daily interaction that accompany each visit. With the help of caring volunteers and dedicated staff, the Meals on Wheels family works together to take care of the people who have often spent their lives taking care of others.
