Meals On Wheels
It's more than just a meal...
We've expanded our program to serve you better!
Headquartered in Cedar Rapids, Horizons Meals On Wheels helps older adults and persons with disabilities in Eastern Iowa meet their daily nutritional needs. Delivering hot, fresh restaurant-quality food 7 days a week, Horizons Meals On Wheels offers ready-to-eat meals in addition to onsite-made frozen meals, breakfast bags and customizable nutritional plans covering every meal of the day. Staff and volunteers who make deliveries provide safety checks, as well as emotional and social support.
• Over 40 volunteers work with the Meals On Wheels staff each day to deliver 800 meals in the Cedar Rapids area.
• Recently, Meals On Wheels rolled out a new Choices Menu, allowing clients to choose between two entrée options for their hot lunch.
• Reaching beyond home-delivered meals, our congregate meal sites offer social opportunities and nutritious meals.
• Horizons has also teamed up with Rinderknecht Associates and local AmeriCorps programs to plant a vegetable garden. Fresh produce harvested from that garden is distributed to Meals On Wheels clients.
Horizons Meals On Wheels is proud to be featured in this United Way video!

“I owe my life to Meals On Wheels. When I started with Meals On Wheels in 2008, I weighed 94 pounds, recovering from pneumonia and Staph infection at Mercy Hospital. Doctors put me in the category ‘High Risk’. A social worker at Mercy Hospital recommended Meals On Wheels for me when I was discharged. As a result of their nutritious and delicious food, I now weigh almost 110 pounds. I am happy, my children are happy and the doctors are happy. And the best part is I am still living in my own home due to Meals On Wheels."
-Betty, Meals On Wheels client
