Meals on Wheels Program: Eastern Counties

Delicious meals delivered right to your doorsteps!

 

Meals on Wheels is a service where a lunch meal is delivered to your home.

We provide a well-balanced, nutritious meal that consists of soup or salad, entre and a dessert.

The meal is delivered to the client’s home during the lunch time period. The meals are available 5 days per week plus on weekends. Depending on which site your meal comes from will determine whether it is a hot or frozen meal. Most weekday meals are hot meals with cold or frozen meals delivered for the weekends. In some cases, a hot meal is not available during the week and you will be offered a cold or frozen meal for those days that can be heated when you are ready to eat.

Special diets are accommodated whenever possible. (Diabetic, low salt, minced, vegetarian)

Volunteers pick up the meals at our kitchens and deliver them to your home. Volunteers often spend a few minutes visiting with the client before the next meal is delivered. The volunteer will alert the office if they have any concerns about your wellbeing.

Anyone can request the Meals on Wheels service and the staff will determine if they are eligible. Older adults and adults with disabilities are the usual recipients of service. However, we will provide meals on a short term basis for an adult with a temporary injury or recovering from an illness/ procedure.

Meals on Wheels is delivered throughout the area, rural and urban areas. The cost per meal will not differ if you live farther away.
