Meals On Wheels
Services - Both Congregate Meal Sites and Delivery Meal locations are dependent upon finances and volunteers.
Therefore, each meal location has its own schedule of services and you must contact them directly to get on their list and determine what services are available.
Congregate Meal Site - A congregate meal site merely indicates that there is a central facility where people meet to have a meal and socialize.
This is a great opportunity for seniors to get out of the house, get a good meal, and make new friends.
There may or may not be transportation provided to this location and this is going to depend on the resources and practices of the organization.
Even if there isn't such transportation available, most locations have public transportation that runs close by.
Delivery Meal Location - This term means that the organization utilizes volunteers and perhaps some paid staff to help deliver meals directly to the home.
Even more so than Congregate Meal Sites, these organizations are heavily dependent on volunteers.
