Meals on Wheels -
Home delivered meals are provided to those who live in the area and qualify, because they are homebound and over 60. Because of funding shortfalls, there may be a waiting list for homebound services. Please contact your local site leader for an assessment.
People over 60 are invited to eat meals at the
senior centers and fill out paperwork for funding. Meals on Wheels
and senior center meals are provided at no cost to recipients.
For home delivered meals, the client must be over 60 and homebound by reason of illness, incapacitating disability, or frailty. Other criteria include those who are 60 and over and are homebound and unable to prepare meals due to limited mobility, psychological or mental impairment, are unable to safely prepare nourishing and well-balanced meals, and are without resources such as family friends or other community services to provide them with meals.
For congregate meals, a person must be over 60 years old.
There are no financial qualifications for either program, but home delivered meals programs are focused on low income participants.
Meals can be provided for guests a long as the
entire cost of the meal is recovered and it does not deprive an eligible
person of receiving a meal. Guests and anyone who has not filled out the appropriate
paperwork for program participation must pay $7.00 for a meal. Qualified
participants are also given the opportunity to share in the cost of the
meal. We request a contribution of $3.00. No eligible person shall
be denied a meal if they do not contribute.
