Our nutritionally balanced meals are available for delivery Monday through Friday, mornings (10am-1pm) and afternoons (1pm-4pm). Meals are delivered by volunteer and staff drivers who have undergone thorough background checks and rigorous training.
Individuals may be referred to our program by family, neighbors, friends or clinical or social work professionals. Individuals may also contact us directly. The initial intake screening is done over the phone. A private interview with the eligible senior and/or family is arranged shortly after the initiation of meal service to ascertain the unique needs of the individual. Meals on Wheels relies on contributions from seniors to help fund the program. We suggest a donation of $3.50 per meal. However, clients may give what they can afford and no senior is denied service due to an inability to donate.
