Service Details

Description

Meal delivery programs prepare and deliver nutritious meals to older adults and people with disabilities who are unable to make the food for themselves or travel to a meal site.


Additional Information

Seniors age 60 and older that are "homebound" are offered the option of home delivery through the Meals on Wheels program.


Hot meals are delivered daily Monday - Friday with frozen meals on the weekends and holidays


Bundled Service Program: For dining patrons 60 years of age or older who live in remote areas, this program makes twice-a-month deliveries to seniors that offers prepared meals that are frozen, food shelf commodities, and Nutrition Assistance Program for Seniors (NAPS) food box.


The Groceries-to-Go Program provides a grocery service to homebound older adults unable to manage grocery shopping.


They ask that dining patrons make reservations the day before. If you wish to cancel your reservation, please do so the day of the reservation.
They also ask that "homebound" patrons let them know if they will not be home. This courtesy reduces food waste. If you are not going to be home for your delivered meal, please cancel your meals.
