How much do meals cost? 

We ask for a donation of $3-$7.62 per meal if eligibility requirements are met. However, we understand that not all seniors have the income to make the donation. Please contact our staff about your income and needs and we'll help you get the meals you need.

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? 

Meals are prepared in our kitchens by volunteers and staff, packaged, frozen and then safely delivered to you once a week by one of our volunteer drivers. They will safely deliver the meal right to your door!
