Healthy Meal on a Plate

Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels brings meals to people over 60 who are homebound and unable to prepare their own meals. The menu is varied and the meals are nutritionally balanced, cooked without added salt, and consists of an entrée, two sides, dessert, milk, bread and margarine. We offer soft, ground, pureed, low-lactose, renal, and cardiac menus. We also offer a modified meal for people with diabetes.  Meals are delivered between 8:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m., Monday through Friday, except holidays. If you’re isolated and homebound, you can arrange for frozen meals that you can use over the weekend.

We ask for a small donation per meal to help us pay for the program. But we never deny anyone a meal if they can't afford to donate.

It’s easy to start delivery of Meals on Wheels. Simply call Information & Referral at 781-599-0110.
