Meals

Volunteers deliver a five-day or seven-day supply of frozen meals to clients’ homes with the option to receive our tasty additional food items.

Clients receive main meals. Several meals are delivered at once so clients can choose the meal they want to eat each day and eat when they’re hungry.

The frozen main meals are specially designed to meet seniors’ nutritional requirements and provide protein, fruit, vegetables, starches/grains and milk. They are stored in the refrigerator and freezer and are easily heated in a microwave oven.

Our menus were developed according to Dietary Guidelines for Americans to meet the nutritional needs of seniors. A registered dietitian develops all menus and menu cycles.

Meals are designed for diabetic, hypertensive and cardiac-restricted diets.
