Home Delivered Meals

Home delivered meals offer many homebound older adults a sense of connection to the outside world. Meal deliverers check on the welfare of the homebound elderly and often become friends. They are trained to report any health or other problems they may notice during their visits.

The home delivered meal program also works to improve the nutrition of homebound older adults. All meals provide at least one-third of the government's daily-recommended dietary allowances.
