Meals on Wheels Continues to Serve
Daily deliveries are made to our community's home bound seniors. Meals are delivered Monday - Friday between 11:00 a.m - 1:00 p.m. Eligible individuals may select a one or two meal per day option. Weekend meals may be available. The daily delivery of nutritious meals, along with frequent check ins from our friendly program volunteers helps to keep Meals On Wheels clients healthy and well connected.
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.
Our local Meals on Wheels program is proud to be apart of a Kenosha area work group focused on decreasing hospital admissions and re-admissions. Data analysis performed by Metastar demonstrates that Meals on Wheels helps enrolled clients reduce their chances of hospital admission and readmission. The analysis supports what we know to be true - that Meals on Wheels helps clients by providing proper nutrition and safety checks while reducing isolation. Specific medical diets may be accommodated. Call for details.

Program Feedback: “Meals on Wheels is such a great blessing 5 days a week. While my brother has dementia he recognizes his Meals on Wheels drivers and it lifts his spirits. I see him often, but I just can’t see him every day so knowing someone is coming by daily around 11a.m. is a huge help and blessing.” 06/13/2017 Family member of program participant.
