Meals on Wheels

We Are Meals On WheelsThe Meals on Wheels (MOW) program delivers lunch to homebound seniors who are unable to provide their own meals, and who meet certain guidelines. Special dietary considerations are available for those with chronic health conditions such as diabetes and heart disease. This daily check in by a volunteer driver may be the only social contact an elder has and helps reduce the isolation often experienced by disabled seniors. Drivers are trained to identify and report observations or emergencies that might indicate a medical problem or the need for more intervention.

A nutritious meal delivered by a friendly driver goes a long way in helping maintain independence. Deliveries are made between 11 am and 1 pm, Monday through Friday. The meals provide:

  • One-third of the Recommended Daily Dietary Allowances
  • Calories: average 700-800
  • Fat: average 30 – 35% of calories)
  • Sodium: average < 1000mg (meets requirements of a No Added Salt diet, 3- 4gm/day)
