  • Individuals, regardless of age, providing volunteer services during meal hours are eligible based on procedures established by the area agency.
  • Individuals, age 60 years or older, or their spouses, who have been determined to be homebound because they are unable to leave their home due to a disabling physical, emotional, or environmental condition, shall be eligible for home-delivered meals.

Home Delivered Meals

  • Meals on Wheels is for homebound seniors who are 60+ years of age and unable to shop or prepare their own meals.

  • Volunteers give of their time to deliver lunch meals using their own vehicles and we try and have them drive the same route, visiting the same senior, the same day of the week each time and check on the well-being of every senior during their delivery. All concerns are reported to the senior center coordinator.

  • If you qualify for Home Delivered Meals any contribution is 100% voluntary. If you choose to contribute $3.00 is the suggested amount, or whatever you can afford is appreciated. Volunteers drop off contribution envelopes each month.

  • Meals are not left if no one is home to answer the door. Service will not be reinstated until the client calls the office to resume delivery.
