A home-delivered meal is a meal that is prepared and delivered to a person’s home, typically by a meal delivery service or a community organization. These meals are often provided to individuals who are unable to prepare their own meals due to age, illness, or disability. Home-delivered meals are usually delivered on a regular basis, such as daily or weekly. The meals are often tailored to meet the specific dietary needs and preferences of the person receiving them. They can be provided as pre-cooked, frozen meals or as fresh meals that are delivered daily or weekly.
Most communities call them Meals on Wheels programs. The government pays for these programs under the Older Americans Act. You can reach them using the Elder Locator site in the link below. Also know that your health insurance company may supply you with food. Please contact your doctor’s office to see if they will write a prescription for food.
