The Hood County Senior Center offers Meals on Wheels delivery 5 days a week. Meals are provided to seniors 60+ throughout Hood County. There is no charge for the service, but a donation of $3.50 per meal is appreciated. Financial need is not a requirement for service. Often, clients use Meals on Wheels as temporary assistance during recovery from surgery or illness.
Meals on Wheels helps to meet the needs of seniors in Hood County with more than just a meal. A daily visit from a volunteer delivery driver also helps to ensure the health and safety of our clients. Wellness checks are performed when a client is not home and every effort is made to protect the health and wellness of each individual.
Meals on Wheels, like congregate meals consists of a protein entree, 2 vegetables, a bread, and a fruit/dessert. Milk (chocolate, 2%, and buttermilk) and apple juice are available.
