Meals on Wheels

What We Do

Meals on Wheels provide seniors, caregivers, persons convalescing, as well as those with chronic illnesses and disabilities with a hot and nutritious meal. In doing so, Meals on Wheels helps individuals remain in their homes longer. Our service also provides clients with a social interaction and a daily wellness check; a tremendous peace of mind for family members.

Our meals are delivered by caring and dedicated volunteers five days a week, excluding holidays.
