The Meals on Wheels program offers two types of home-delivered meals – hot meals delivered daily (Monday through Friday) and frozen meals delivered once weekly. Most meals served in Jefferson County are hot meals, which are delivered daily by volunteers. Frozen meals are generally provided in areas where we do not offer daily hot food delivery or in other very specific circumstances as determined by our case managers.
Join us in our mission to serve homebound seniors by sharing your special skills and interests!
Below is a listing of opportunities to join us in our commitment to help our homebound neighbors live independently and with dignity in the comfort of their own homes.
