Home-Delivered Meal Service

Home-Delivered Meal Service

About this Service

a tray of healthy foodThis program provides nutritious meals for seniors who are determined to be homebound, and therefore cannot attend a congregate site. The meals are delivered by a volunteer five days per week. We believe that healthy meals and regular contact with meal drivers that this service provides helps senior adults remain independent in their own homes longer.

Eligibility is assessed by a county employee during a home visit and periodic home and telephone visits are conducted for all clients receiving home-delivered meals. These visits allow us to check on the well-being of our clients and provide referrals to any needed support services.

Clients may be placed on a waiting list if an existing meal delivery route is not available at the time the application is submitted.
