The Council on Aging's Meals on Wheels program provides hot, noontime meals for those who are unable to shop or cook. Although Meals on Wheels primarily serves frail seniors, it is available to all Martin County residents who have a need for this service, whether on a permanent or temporary basis (for example, following surgery).
To keep costs affordable, volunteers deliver over 250 meals each day throughout Martin County. Meals are delivered to clients' homes Monday through Friday, between 10:30 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Weekend and breakfast meals can be delivered upon request. Full week or partial week service is also available. The program accommodates a wide range of therapeutic diets for those with special needs.
In addition to providing seniors with a hot, healthy lunch, this program maintains a much-needed personal daily contact by our volunteers with Meals on Wheels recipients who are often alone or isolated. Our volunteers are trained how to respond to emergencies.
Meals on Wheels is most appropriate for those with limited mobility who cannot easily leave their homes or cook for themselves. For more active elders, our Senior Dining Centers offer a nutritional alternative with greater opportunities to socialize.
We are also pleased to offer Kane Cuisine, a new, private pay choice menu that offers restaurant quality meals delivered to your door.
