Nutrition and Wellness Services

Home Delivered Meals

Home delivered meal service is available to homebound, frail elderly people who can no longer prepare nutritious well-balanced meals, have no one to assist them and are at-risk of losing their ability to live independently.  Also, liquid nutrition meals are available in some situations with a physician's order.

Given the rural, mountainous geography, meals are delivered in a variety of ways.  Those living in remote sections of the service area may receive a two or four-week supply of frozen dinners, if able to heat and store the meals.  Those older citizens who live in more populated sections of the area, may be able to receive daily hot meals.  MEOC home delivered meal service consists of one meal per day, five days per week.

Close to 900 older persons in MEOC's service area receive home delivered meals yearly.
