Meals on Wheels
What is Meals on Wheels?
Meals on Wheels delivers hot, nutritious noontime meals to eligible residents with the help of many volunteers. The bright smile and friendly greeting from the delivery volunteer is often as nourishing as the meal.
Who can receive Meals on Wheels?
If you have a loved one or neighbor who is homebound, physically challenged, or recuperating, Meals on Wheels can help.
What kind of meals are served?
Meals are prepared and packed at Brigham City Senior Center by our trained staff. Each meal provides one-third of the minimum daily nutritional requirements for adults and contains:
A soft diet is available for those who have difficulty chewing or swallowing. Meals are low in salt and lightly seasoned. Meals are delivered Monday through Friday between 11:30 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. Frozen meals are available for weekends or holidays. A liquid diet supplement is also available at a reduced price.
Will you leave my meal if I am not Home?
State health laws prohibit us from leaving a meal if you are not home. Part of the service offered by Meals on Wheels is the daily visit to see that you are in good health and safe from harm. Please let us know before 10:30 a.m. if you will not be at home to receive your meal.
How is Meals on Wheels Funded?
Meals on Wheels receives funding through Box Elder Golden Spike Senior Services, from local cities and counties, along with federal and state monies. Grants are administered through the Bear River Agency of Government. Contributions from generous individuals, businesses, community organizations and corporations support the Meals on Wheels Program.
Your United Way contributions will aid the Programs at the Senior Center when you designate Brigham City Senior Center on your United Way form for payroll deductions.
