Meals on Wheels

  • Nutritious mid-day meals for homebound seniors

    The Meals on Wheels program delivers mid-day meals to frail and isolated older adults Mon. thru Fri. (weekend meals are delivered on Thurs. and Fri.). Special diets (diabetic, bland, strict sodium, cut meat, pureed, and others) are available.

    Each home delivered meal applicant is assessed to determine program eligibility and any other services needed to assist in living as independently as possible.

    • For assistance: Existing clients call 385.468.3220
    • For new meal service: Call 385.468.3200

    Volunteer Opportunities

    The Meals on Wheels Volunteer Program enlists the support of community volunteers who donate one lunch hour weekly to deliver hot meals to eligible seniors near their home or workplace. Generally, volunteers are part of a work or service group who commit as an organization to ‘adopt’ a group of seniors in their area for meal delivery, friendly visits, and to ensure the general safety and wellbeing of their clients.

    Volunteer routes are comprised of 8-10 stops and can be completed within one hour. Meals on Wheels staff accompany volunteers on their first visit to the homes of clients to make introductions and review program delivery policies. Opportunities exist Monday – Friday with meals delivered between 10:30am – 1:30pm. No weekends or holidays.

    Volunteer Requirements

    • Pass an extensive background check

    Training and Support

    The program’s Volunteer Coordinator provides a 15 minute introduction to the program. Often this takes place as part of a staff meeting or other gathering for a group wishing to participate.
