Frozen Meal Program

Once a week, clients receive two to fourteen meals, based on need and preferences. In addition, to promote a healthy diet, deliveries include milk or juice, bread, fruit, and snacks. The delivery day is determined by the client’s location within the county.


Daily meal deliveries features tray with chicken, peas, and mixed vegetables

Daily Delivery Program

Clients who cannot store or prepare frozen meals may request one hot meal, one cold-bagged meal, or a set of meals (one hot and one cold) each day of service. To ensure proper nutrition over the weekend, Friday’s regular delivery includes two cold-bagged meals and two frozen meals.

Emergency Bags

Beginning in October, in case volunteers cannot deliver due to bad weather or kitchen closure, we offer emergency meal bags that contain enough shelf-stable food for two meals. Bags are also available during the summer in case of power outages. To the extent possible, these meals follow the same dietary guidelines as our regular programs.


A person, over the age of 18, must be substantially homebound due to physical or mental challenges, and must be unable to shop and/or prepare meals.
