Meals on Wheels, a program of Elder Services of Cape Cod and the Islands, brings meals to people aged 60 and older who are homebound and unable to prepare their own meals. The menu is varied and the meals are nutritionally balanced, prepared without added salt, and consist of a dinner, dessert (diabetic desserts can be ordered in advance), milk, bread and margarine.
Meals are delivered between 10 am and Noon, Monday through Friday, except holidays. If you’re isolated and homebound, you can arrange for extra meals that you can use over the weekend.
We ask for a small donation of $3.00 per meal to help us pay for the program, but we never deny anyone a meal if they are unable to make a donation.
