The Title III home delivered meal program is one that provides so much more than
just a meal. While participants who are homebound receive a well-balanced
nutritious meal, they are greeted by drivers who provide a wellness check with each
visit. For many clients the delivery person may be their only daily contact ensuring
their safety at home. Nutrition education and counseling which promote the role of
nutrition in preventative health is also available.
Meals for those with dietary restrictions are available. To ensure the proper
temperature and food safety meals may not be left in a cooler or with a neighbor.
The Title III home delivered meal program is supported by federal and state funds
that provide services for participants aged 60 and over. Anonymous donations are
suggested but not required.
