The home-delivered meals program provides nutritionally sound meals to frail older adults who find it difficult to prepare meals. The meals are delivered to homebound persons 60 years or older, or adults with disabilities, who are unable to shop or prepare meals for themselves. This can include persons who are ill, recently hospitalized or disabled.
The number of meals delivered is based on an assessment of the needs of each individual. Service can begin within a few days of application. The minimum service is one week. There is no cost for meals, however, each participant has an opportunity to contribute to the cost.
