Meals on Wheels
Our Home Delivered Meals include three related programs:
- Meals on Wheels are meals delivered to the recipient's home four days a week.
- Frozen Meals are picked up monthly by a family member or volunteer and delivered to persons who are not located near a traditional Meals on Wheels route or there is no availability on the route.
- Boost/Ensure Supplements are delivered once a month to persons who have a medical need.
Meals on Wheels and Frozen Meals are available to any person living in Catawba County who is 60 or older and who has no member of the household who is able or willing to shop for or prepare meals. Delivery of Boost/Ensure Supplements requires a doctor’s order stating that the service is needed. There are no income requirements to participate, and there is no cost to recipients (although donations are accepted).
Pet Food: In addition to meals, Catawba County Meals on Wheels makes pet food available monthly. We recognize how important pets are to our meal recipients, 30% of whom have a pet. Unfortunately, when there are difficult financial choices to make, recipients may purchase food for their pet in lieu of the things they need or may even share their meals with their pet. Meals on Wheels applies for a Pet Food Grant annually from Meals on Wheels of America and looks to other grants, donations, and volunteer help to sustain the Pet Food program.
