    Cost

    This service is provided to the client at no charge. Donations, in any amount, are always appreciated and often needed. Donations may be made by individuals, family, and community members at any time. Donation envelopes are provided to Meals on Wheels clients at the beginning of the month along with the menu. Donations may also be made in person, by mail or online by clicking here.

    Volunteering

    The bulk of our Meals on Wheels are delivered by volunteers, and without our volunteers, Meals on Wheels would not be the success it is. Individuals, families, church groups, civic groups, and businesses are welcome to volunteer for Meals On Wheels. Individuals 18 years of age and older are asked to complete a volunteer application, provide a copy of driver's license and insurance, (volunteers under 18 are allowed to deliver meals under the supervision of a parent or guardian). A background check will be conducted prior to approval. Meals on Wheels’ clients look forward to seeing their volunteers each day. Getting to know their volunteers is at the top of the list of things clients enjoy about Meals on Wheels, according to surveys. See the Volunteer page for more details.

    Delivery Routes

    Meals on Wheels clients who live within a five-mile radius of Holland Lake Drive will receive a hot meal Monday through Friday between 10:30 AM and 12:00 PM.

    Meals on Wheels clients who reside outside the five-mile radius will receive five frozen meals every week. Meals are fully cooked, must be stored in a freezer, and prepared in a microwave. Delivery times may be between 10:30 AM and the end of the business day.
