Our home delivered meals program, known to many as Meals on Wheels, provides nutritious meals to older adults who are unable to prepare their own meals or to attend the community meal at one of our 14 mealsites. Meals include fruits and vegetables, dairy and grains, and a protein. Fresh local foods are frequently prepared, and all menus are dietitian approved.
Volunteers deliver hot and frozen meals and more. They provide a warm smile, and assure each senior they visit that someone is checking on their safety and well-being.
To register for Meals on Wheels (MOW), contact your local home delivered meal program. For a list of MOW programs click here.
All Meals on Wheels participants will be contacted by a CVCOA Options Counselor to offer a home visit to discuss other concerns and to share information.
