Meals on Wheels clients must be 60 years of age or older, homebound and unable to purchase or prepare regular nutritious meals for themselves, and have no one else available to do so.


Meals are delivered by volunteers five days per week before noon, and frozen meals are available for weekends. Each meal exceeds one-third of the recommended dietary allowance for older adults, and is individually packaged hot or cold, depending on the menu item. Weekly deliveries of seven frozen meals may be offered as an alternative when space is unavailable on hot meals routes.


The program is funded through a variety of resources including client contributions. Each Meals on Wheels client is asked to contribute what they can afford towards the cost of their meals.


If you or someone you know qualifies for Meals on Wheels, please call the contact number for the community in which services are needed.
