Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches - COVID-19 UPDATE

Posted By Charlotte Gill, Friday, June 26, 2020

Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches

Meals on Wheels of the Palm Beaches, Inc. is a locally founded 501 (C)(3) non-profit organization whose mission is to nourish home bound seniors in our community with a freshly prepared and nutritious hot meal. Our volunteers deliver the lunchtime meals 5 days a week to our senior clients along with a friendly hello and wellness check, reporting back any concerns for communication to the family.

We serve those individuals age 65 and over who are home bound due to age, infirmity or debilitating illness and are unable or struggling to food shop and prepare nutritious meals.  Our clients typically are no longer driving or driving infrequently.  They are either living alone or living with their spouse/partner who may also be home bound.  We also serve households where one of the two individuals is homebound and the other is mobile and the primary caregiver.  Our clients all contribute to the cost of the meal service based on a sliding scale and according to their financial ability.  

CURRENT UPDATES:  Due to COVID-19 we have temporarily adjusted our operations to ensure the continued health and safety of the vulnerable senior population we serve, as well our volunteers many of whom are over 60 themselves.  We have shifted from daily deliveries to once a week delivery of a multi-pack of frozen dinner meals along with three breakfast meals.

In addition, we opened temporary meal service eligibility to seniors who are normally mobile and able to shop for themselves but who, due to COVID-19, are not shopping in public to minimize their exposure.  They receive weekly delivery of the multi-pack of meals delivered at no cost which is made possible by special grant funding.

To inquire about eligibility and setup service please call (561) 802-6979 extension 6.
