Never Skip A Meal Senior

Purpose

We deliver nutritious meals directly to seniors’ homes, helping them remain independent in their community. Home Delivered Meals are provided to individuals aged 60 or older who are homebound due to illness or disability, unable to travel to a congregate meals site, and/or cannot prepare meals for themselves. A Client Care Manager will work with you to understand your dietary and meal delivery needs.
