Nutrition / Meals on Wheels

Elder Care Services’ Nutrition Services Programs have been serving seniors since 1971 by providing a hot meal, which meets one-third of the recommended daily nutritional requirements.

For frail, home-bound seniors, these meals are the lifeline that allows them to remain in their homes and avoid going into a nursing home.

Nutrition Services include:

  • Congregate Meal Sites
  • Frozen Meals
  • Meals on Wheels
  • Transportation to Congregate Meal Sites

Meals on Wheels — This program fills the most basic necessity by providing a hot, nutritious meal, along with a safety check to home-bound seniors through coordination of 30 daily routes. We require a $75.00 (plus $2.00 processing fee) for new Meals on Wheels home dining clients, as well as completion of the Home Dining Contract — to remit immediate payment click below:

Congregate Meal Sites — Seniors gather at one of our eight Congregate Meal Site locations to enjoy a nutritious lunch and socialization. They receive information on healthy eating and participate in health screening activities. Our Congregate Meal Sites include:
