Do our recipients enjoy their Meals On Wheels?

You bet they do. The kitchens that serve our Meals program prepare “comfort food” meals which our seniors are familiar with. A typical weekly menu might include hot meals like manicotti with sauce, stuffed peppers, lemon chicken, paprikash and noodles, homemade soup/sandwich, cold plate: chicken, tuna, egg salad; rolls, butter, sometimes breakfast of sausage, French toast, butter & syrup, fresh fruit, milk, snacks. or a juicy hamburger with condiments. For those requiring a special diet, we coordinate with Bedford Medical Center/University Hospitals to obtain renal diets, soft food diets low-salt, low-carb or allergy free diets tailored to one’s needsl

As an extra safety precaution during this Pandemic, our volunteers are required to wear a mask and are fully vaccinated, and try to remain 6-feet apart.
