Meals On Wheels
The Meals on Wheels program provides home-delivered meal services to older adults and adults with disabilities. Our mission is to assist older adults and adults with disabilities to remain in their homes for as long as possible in an independent and dignified manner. We provide nutritious meals delivered by trained drivers, daily safety checks, resource information, and peace of mind for the participants and their loved ones. The program successfully helps to reduce or prevent malnutrition, ensure safety, reduce isolation and to keep folks at home where they prefer to be.
