We deliver more than food.

Delivering meals to the homebound

doesn't just supply a hot nutritious meal. 

It also gives people the ability to maintain their independence in their own homes and acts as a little "how are you today" check-in for some that may not otherwise receive any company or visitors. The majority of home-delivered meal recipients live alone and, for many of them, the person delivering the meal is often the only person they will see that day. A warm smile from a friendly visitor goes a long way! 

Meals on Wheels specializes in addressing the unique needs of the most vulnerable and high-risk senior and disabled populations of America. Since 1971, our services have effectively improved health outcomes and quality of life for millions of clients each year, while reducing risks, hospital re-admissions, and overall healthcare costs. 

Meals on Wheels Health is an initiative of Meals on Wheels America that brings together the nationwide Meals on Wheels network in support of the achievements of the healthcare system of its triple bottom line goals. We can accomplish this because of our trusted and unique ability to cross the threshold into the homes of seniors, giving us the advantage to better assess and deliver on the individualized needs of high-risk and special needs beneficiaries. Through our services, we:

  • Improve and support patient health and recovery by delivering nutritious meals;

  • Increase well-being that supports patient health by providing the human contact that reduces isolation, depression, and anxiety; and

  • Reduce negative impacts on patient health by assessing home environments and addressing threats or risks.

Fueled by a commitment to address senior hunger and isolation, Meals on Wheels provides the basic support that seniors need to maintain their health and independence in virtually every community in America.
