Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels is the driving force behind nutritional and wellness support for older adults in Schuylkill County. The program:

  • Provides one-third of the Recommended Daily Allowance of nutritional needs for participants
  • Fosters well-being and safety
  • Enables conversation between participants and Meals on Wheels volunteers
  • Helps older adults to remain independent in their homes.

Meals on Wheels is designed to provide nutritious hot and cold noon-time meals to homebound individuals. The program not only provides short-term assistance to individuals recuperating from surgery or illness, but also offers long-term service for those who qualify.

Assessment is completed by the Schuylkill County Office of Senior Services, through which the program is contracted and partially funded. Meals on Wheels is literally driven by volunteers who deliver meals to 300 county residents.
