Older Adults

Serving 300,000 Meals Per Year

Meals on Wheels provides nutritious meals to older adults. Each meal is computer analyzed and approved by a Registered Dietitian to provide one-third of the daily requirements for older adults.

For home-bound individuals and their family members, the daily meal provides a sense of security knowing someone will be stopping in to check on them each week day.

Home Delivered

Meals on Wheels delivers hot meals five days a week to home-bound seniors. Individuals must be 60 or older and unable to leave their home without assistance to qualify for home delivery. The program includes optional frozen and breakfast meals that help to round out the daily nutritional requirements for those needing additional support.

The daily delivery serves as an important safety check each day. Drivers notify Meals on Wheels of concerns, and they follow up to make sure the  person is safe, or to get them the help they need.

Congregate Dining Sites

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 their peers, participate in activities such as BINGO, card games, or knitting and hear presentations on topics such as heart disease, strokes and more.
