How much do meals cost? 

We ask for a donation of $4-$8 per meal if eligibility requirements are met. However, we understand that not all seniors have the income to make the donation. Service is not based on income.

What if I am not eligible for Meals on Wheels? 

If you do not meet Meals on Wheels eligibility requirements, you may still receive home-delivered meals by paying the full price of each delivered meal, which is $9.50 (subject to change). This cost is inclusive of delivery as well as a loaf of bread and a half-gallon of milk each week. You choose how many meals you'd like to receive each week and you can cancel your service at any time.

How does it work? 

After completing an assessment to determine eligibility for Meals on Wheels, dietary information is sent to the kitchen and added to our route. We prepare and package all of our own meals to be delivered weekly or bimonthly.
