Home-Delivered Meals are nutritious meals that are delivered to home-bound seniors age 60 years or older and their spouses. The drivers who deliver the meals make daily contact and check on the well-being of seniors they visit. The Area Agency on Aging contracts with 11 Home-Delivered Meal providers, serving eight of our nine counties. Meals are provided free of charge for those who are eligible but voluntary donations are always accepted and appreciated.
Home-bound seniors are able to remain in their homes in part because of the delivery of hot, cold or frozen meals.
