  Home Delivered Meals Program

 

Home Delivered meals are provided for homebound seniors. Each meal is prepared by a catering service and consists of a meat, two vegetables and/or fruit, bread, and milk. The meals are delivered during the weekdays by area volunteers who generously give their time and use their vehicles. These friendly volunteers are a source of social contact and help reduce the feelings of isolation that many homebound elderly experience. 
Eligibility Requirements:
      60 years of age or older
      Live within the rural serving area
      Unable to prepare or obtain complete and nutritious meals

Senior Services does not charge for services provided. Services are primarily funded by state and federal grants and community donations. Participants of the program are encouraged to make monthly contributions if they are able. Inability to contribute does not affect your service.

Each route serves approximately 12 clients. Clients are selected based on need and availability.
