Who can receive meals?
We deliver meals to seniors (60 years or older) who are home-bound, no longer driving, unable to prepare food themselves, and do not have a caregiver that prepares meals. Meals are provided based on need, not on income.
When are meals delivered?
We deliver meals between 10:00 am and 2:00 pm, Monday through Friday. Holiday meals are also available. Your driver can deliver your meal to the door.
What kind of meals are served?
Each nutritious meal is designed by a Registered Dietitian and supplies 1/3 of the daily dietary needs for an older adult. Entrees include beef, chicken, pork, fish, and pasta. We can accommodate diabetic meals. You’ll receive a new menu at the beginning of each month, so you can see what meals will be delivered.
How much do meals cost?
The cost of the meal is approximately $6.31. We suggest a donation of $2.50, however, we will not turn anyone away who cannot contribute.
Do I have to be home when my meal is delivered?
Yes, you must be home. We cannot leave meals outside for sanitary reasons. We also want to see how you are doing and find out if you need anything. Your meal will be delivered around the same time every day, so you’ll know when to expect us. If you know that you are not going to be home on a certain day, call us in advance to let us know. We will not deliver your meal that day.
