Meals on Wheels helps older adults and persons with disabilities in Eastern Iowa meet their daily nutritional needs by delivering hot, fresh, ready-to-eat meals in addition to frozen meals and breakfast bags.
Our clients can receive meals for a short duration while they’re recovering from a hospital stay, as respite care for their family who usually provides meals for them, or on an ongoing basis each weekday.
For home-bound seniors and their family members, the daily meal provides a sense of security knowing someone will be stopping in to check on them Monday through Friday.
Congregate meals are available to any adult 60 or older, their spouse regardless of age and their child with disabilities (who lives with and attends with an eligible parent). In addition to meals, the congregate sites provide the opportunity to socialize with others, participate in activities such as BINGO, card games, or knitting, and hear presentations on topics such as heart disease, strokes and more.
The following congregate dining sites serve lunch Monday through Friday:
