Meals on Wheels
How much do Meals on Wheels cost?
A preliminary assessment will determine eligibility and your suggested donation amount based upon your self-reported income. You will receive a monthly contribution statement based upon how many meals you receive that month and your determined suggested donation amount. This is a donation and it is optional, however, donations do play a crucial role in assisting the program with serving all participants who need meals. Suggested donations are typically a $3.50-$6.00 range. Any and all amounts will be appreciated.
AgeWell Services assists any age needing homebound meals. For those under 60, there is a minimum cost of $7.00 per meal.
