Home Delivered Meals

The Home Delivered Meals Program is designed to provide a well-balanced daily meal to homebound older adults who are unable to prepare adequate meals for themselves and have no other means for assuring healthful nutrition.

On Monday, Wednesday and Friday, a hot meal is delivered to the older adult’s home.  Tuesday and Thursday meals are a cold bag lunch delivered with the previous day’s hot meal. Those eligible for this program receive seven (7) meals per week, with the addition of two (2) frozen meals.

The delivery of meals may occur any time between 11:00 AM and 1:00 PM.

Volunteers from the local senior center deliver the meals to the older adult’s home.  Although this is a brief contact it does provide a check on the well being of the homebound individual.

The home-delivered meal service is not a cost shared service.

Monetary donations can be made to the York County Area Agency on Aging.

Care managers need to complete an in-home assessment to determine eligibility for Home Delivered Meals.
