Meals On Wheels Programs

 

The Senior Hub Meals on Wheels program provides a hot, nutritious meal to people who are unable to prepare one for themselves.

 

With our two program options, we serve not just the elderly, but people who are recuperating from a hospital stay & active seniors who are looking for convenience.MOWdelivery_logo

Volunteer Info

Meals on Wheels is so much more than just a meal.  In many cases, our Meals on Wheels volunteer delivery drivers are the only visitors many of our clients receive. MOW 03.08 B 015aDrivers provide a wellness check during each visit. If a driver does not have a client answer a door, emergency contacts are called to check on the health and welfare of that client. In many cases, the driver’s quick response to a situation can be a major factor in saving the life of a senior.

The Senior Hub’s Meals on Wheels clients also receive special attention on holidays with special gifts, and goody bags filled with useful items like Kleenex, sugar-free goodies, “word search” books etc.

On Thanksgiving, members of two community churches deliver home-cooked meals to clients who will be alone and have no family or friends with whom to share the holiday. During the Christmas holiday, the Meals on Wheels program facilitates an “Adopt A Senior” program. Clients with no family or friends nearby can apply for the program. On Christmas Day volunteers prepare and deliver home-cooked meals and deliver stockings and gifts to the registered seniors.
