Meals on Wheels (Home Delivered Meals)

Home Delivered Meals provides a nutritious meal and personal contact to homebound seniors in the San Joaquin County community.

In order to be eligible, a person must be both 60 years of age or older and homebound. Those seniors that live alone, are older & frail, are the highest priority for the home delivery service. A spouse under 60 or a disabled dependent adult that resides with an eligible senior and is also homebound is also eligible for the meal service.

A 5-pack of frozen meals are delivered to your door weekly, along with fresh milk and fruit. All menus are reviewed by 2 nutritionists to ensure compliance with Federal Guidelines. Meals are designed to be low fat, low salt, and low sugar. Meals are delivered once a week by 2pm. There is no set delivery time of meals, and you must be home in order to receive your delivery.

There is a $2.00 per meal suggested contribution. No one will be denied services for the inability to contribute. Please consider giving whatever you can afford to contribute. All contributions are greatly appreciated!
