Meals on Wheels

 

 

The Meals on Wheels Program enables the elderly, the sick, and the disabled to remain in their own homes with help from people who care.  Through Meals on Wheels, home-delivered meals are provided to persons who are unable to prepare their own meals and are at risk of going to a nursing home.

Services

 Meals on Wheels provides meal service Monday through Friday to eligible individuals living in Kenosha County.

 

Meals are delivered between 11-1 pm.  Individuals may select a one or two meal option.  For those requiring additional meals, there are frozen meals available to eat on the weekends that are delivered once per month.


Meals are prepared by local organizations with kitchens through contracts with Meals on Wheels.


Eligibility

 

Meals on Wheels are available to individuals who are elderly or disabled, who are homebound and unable to prepare meals for themselves or do not have assistance in preparing meals. When meals are requested, our social worker will come to your home to further discuss your needs.

 

 *All meals are 1/3 RDA.

 

 

Reassurance

 

Our program also offers a daily “check-in” for seniors.  If we have trouble delivering to you, we make sure to contact your family to find out why. 

 

Hours

 

Our office is open M-F 8-4:30 pm.  If you are interested in learning more about our services please call:

 

City Services – (262) 658-0237

Volunteers

 

Meals on Wheels is also in need of volunteers.  Volunteers deliver meals to 8-16 people one day a week for about an hour. 

 

We serve about 250 people per day.  Because the need is so great in the community and we are not-for-profit – we rely on volunteers to get the job done.

 

Volunteers must have a driver’s license and transportation.  Training is easy.  If you are interested, please call our program coordinator at 658-3508, ext. 116.
