MEALS ON WHEELS


At Age Well Senior Services, we’re doing our best to make sure no senior in need goes hungry by providing our vital nutrition programs – Meals on Wheels and Congregate Lunch.  Annually, we deliver over 300,000 nutritious meals through Meals on Wheels to seniors who are living at home with little or no assistance to obtain adequate meals.

NUTRITION

Specifically created by our registered dietitian to meet the nutritional needs of older adults, each delivery consists of THREE meals: (1) a hot, ready-to-eat meal, (2) a cold meal to eat later in the day, and (3) a breakfast meal for the following morning.

HOURS & LOCATIONS

Volunteers deliver meals Monday through Friday between the hours of 10:30 AM and 1:00 PM (excluding observed holidays).  Please select the location nearest to the recipient’s home from our senior centers listed HERE.

  • Observed holidays: New Year’s Day, MLK Jr. Day, President’s Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Veteran’s Day, Thanksgiving (Th, F), Christmas Day  (Please note: senior centers may have varying holiday closures and program availability.)

“I am so very thankful for MOW and Age Well for the wonderful meals they provided before the holidays. Thank you also to Homestead for the wonderful gifts I received. I have five children and none of them made time to visit me over the holidays. You all are so wonderful and I very much appreciate all that you do for me. I look forward to receiving my food and having conversation with the volunteers. I appreciate you checking in on me to be sure I am okay especially since you are the only people who care enough to do that. I hope you never stop doing what you do because you are all I have.”

– AJ, Meals on Wheels recipient
