• The service is available to anyone who is physically or mentally unable to prepare a meal for themselves regardless of age or income. Clients may request assistance themselves or be referred by their physician, a family member, church pastor, or hospital discharge personnel. Applications for home-delivered meals can be completed by calling our office. We will contact a client’s primary physician to obtain a dietary prescription. A dietary prescription is required for each client receiving meals to insure that dietary restrictions are honored, and dietary requirements are met.

  • Food Preparation

    Meals are prepared in state-approved healthcare facilities under the direct supervision of registered dietitians. Special dietary requirements can be accommodated such as a diabetic, heart healthy, low-fat/low-cholesterol, or renal diets for dialysis patients.

  • Meal Options Available

    Menus are designed by the nutrition services staff at each of the meal preparation facilities and may rotate on a weekly or monthly basis. Personal preferences or substitutions may or may not be possible.

  • Meal Option 1

    A one-meal plan consists of a hot lunch in a three-compartment tray and includes a protein portion, a carbohydrate, and a vegetable. A separate cold sack accompanies the hot meal and provides bread and butter, dessert and a choice of milk or juice as a beverage.

  • Meal Option 2

    The two-meal plan consists of the same hot lunch, plus an additional deli-style sack supper that includes a protein sandwich, a fruit or dessert, and a second choice of milk or juice as a beverage.

  • Clients are asked to pay for the cost of their meals and are invoiced at the beginning of each month for all the meals consumed in the previous month. Third-party payers on behalf of a client may include a relative, adult child, a friend/church member, or a private sponsor. Every effort is made to provide meals to clients regardless of their ability to pay. With the financial support of CICOA Aging & In-Home Solutions, we are able to subsidize a portion or all of the meal cost for those who need assistance.
