Popularly known as "Meals-on-Wheels", this federally sponsored service is a national program administered locally to deliver well-balanced, lunchtime meals to frail, homebound individuals who are at least 60 years of age. Elders are asked to make a $2.00 donation per meal to help defray the cost of the meal.
Elder Services delivers hot lunches to elders living in Auburn, Barre, Boylston, Grafton, Hardwick, Holden, Leicester, Millbury, New Braintree, Oakham, Paxton, Rutland, Shrewsbury, West Boylston, and Worcester. Meals are delivered Monday-Friday and include regular hot meals, modified meals for diabetics, supper meals and frozen meals, depending upon a client’s needs. Kosher and therapeutic meals are available in the City of Worcester.
For information about home delivered meals contact Elder Services of Worcester Area’s Nutrition Program at 508-852-3205.
