Meals on Wheels helps older adults and persons with disabilities in Eastern Iowa meet their daily nutritional needs by delivering hot, fresh, restaurant-quality food seven 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 for every meal of the day.
More than 50 volunteers work with the Meals on Wheels staff each day to deliver 1,000 meals in the Cedar Rapids and Iowa City area. Dedicated staff and volunteers also provide safety checks, as well as emotional and social support to the Meals on Wheels community. Contact Horizons Meals on Wheels today to discuss eligibility.

"I owe my life to Meals on Wheels. When I started with Meals on Wheels in 2008, I weighed 94 pounds. 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."

Lunch Club, formerly known as Congregate Meals, strives to combat senior hunger and social isolation. The program was moved to Horizons in order to accommodate larger group sizes and be handicapped accessible.
