Meals on Wheels
Meals on Wheels is a service designed to help an aging population and other vulnerable individuals by delivering hot nutritious meals to their home.
This service provides more than just a meal. A friendly smile to greet you at the door and reassurance that a Meals on Wheels volunteer will be checking in on you or your loved one each delivery day.
If a volunteer does not make face to face contact with you, a family member or friend is notified to assure your safety.
