Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels provides home delivery of fully prepared meals, as well as regular social contact.

With hundreds of local programs, Meals on Wheels provides services well beyond meal delivery. For many housebound seniors and others in need, the social interaction may be as nourishing as the meal itself.

In addition to meal delivery, your local Meals on Wheels may also provide:

  • Nutrition counseling
  • Shopping service
  • Links to social services and medical care
  • Referrals to other needed services
