Nutrition and Wellness
Home Delivered Meals
Home delivered meal service is
available to homebound, frail elderly people who can
no longer prepare nutritious well-balanced meals,
have no one to assist them and are at-risk of losing
their ability to live independently. Also,
liquid nutrition meals are available in some
situations with a physician's order.
Given the rural, mountainous
geography, meals are delivered in a variety of ways.
Those living in remote sections of the service area
may receive a two or four-week supply of frozen
dinners, if able to heat and store the meals.
Those older citizens who live in more populated
sections of the area, may be able to receive daily
hot meals. MEOC home delivered meal service
consists of one meal per day, five days per week.
Close to 900 older persons in MEOC's
service area receive home delivered meals yearly.
