Meals on Wheels
Many local seniors are homebound and struggle to obtain healthy meals. Hundreds have no one to talk with or check on them on a regular basis. When volunteers come to the door with a hot meal Monday through Friday, the food and visit help these seniors stay healthy and independent longer.
Who Is Eligible?
The Meals on Wheels Program delivers a nutritious noontime meal to homebound senior adults age 60 and over. Guilford County residents age 60 and over who are homebound and unable to obtain and prepare a nutritious meal for themselves are eligible for this service. There may be a waiting list in certain parts of Guilford County if the route in that area is full.
Want to Become a Meals on Wheels Volunteer?
Volunteers from the faith community, local businesses and schools work in pairs to deliver the meals, which are prepared by a local caterer. The volunteers also check on the well-being of each senior they visit.
Meals-on-Wheels volunteers deliver a hot meal and a warm smile to seniors who are homebound. Deliveries generally take about an hour and a half Monday through Friday between the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Routes are available all over Guilford County and volunteers can deliver as often as their schedules allow.
