SENIOR NUTRITION PROGRAM
Meals on Wheels
Meals on Wheels brings meals to people aged 60 and older who are homebound and unable to prepare their own meals. The menu is varied and the meals are nutritionally balanced, prepared without added salt, and consist of a dinner, dessert (diabetic desserts can be ordered in advance), milk, bread and margarine. Meals are delivered between 9 AM and Noon, Monday through Friday, except holidays. If youíre isolated and homebound, you can arrange for extra meals that you can use over the weekend.
We ask for a small donation of $3.00 per meal to help us pay for the program, but we never deny anyone a meal if they are unable to make a donation.
Itís easy to start delivery of Meals on Wheels. Simply call Information & Referral at 508-394-4630 or 1-800-244-4630.
Throughout the area, you will find places to enjoy a healthy, affordable meal usually located within a local senior center or housing facility. These Senior Dining Centers provide an opportunity for you to get together with your friends... meet new people... have a reason to get up and out... enjoy a hot, nutritious meal ... and maybe play a game of cards.
Transportation to some sites can be arranged. Please call your nearest site for details. During bad weather, call 508-394-4630 or 1-800-244-4630 for site closing information.
