Meal Delivery Services

There are two major categories of meal delivery services available.

  1. Free or subsidized meal delivery services.
  2. Paid meal services.

Free or Subsidized Meal Delivery

Organizations that provide free or subsidized meals to seniors are mostly run on donations and grants.

Meals on Wheels America provides nutritious meals for seniors at their doorsteps. For those who can venture out, meals are distributed at the senior community centers. They serve throughout the US, across 5,000 communities by volunteers and staff members. What’s more, a safety check accompanies meal delivery. The volunteer or staff member ensures that if a senior has fallen or is not well, the authorities and the family members are alerted.

Project Angel Heart provides free, fully-cooked, refrigerated, and home-delivered food for seniors diagnosed with life-threatening illnesses.

Mom’s Meals provides chef-cooked tasty food options delivered at seniors’ doorsteps.
