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 5pm. 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!

For more information, call (209) 468-1104 or you can use the Service Referral and Follow-up Summary form (SJ30A) to refer yourself or someone else. Once completed (Sections 1-4) fax to 209-932-2663 or email to:
