Meals on Wheels by any other name
Meals on Wheels is the most recognized name brand of senior nutrition programs. But other senior meal programs by various names are in many communities in the U.S.and around the world and often go by names other than Meals on Wheels (ageneric term generally reserved for home delivered meal programs). While Meals on Wheels programs are delivered to the home, seniors may also find congregate meal programs at local senior centers, churches, or community centers.
Many communities have both Meals on Wheels and congregate senior meal programs through senior centers available to local residents. You should alwayscontact your local meal program directly to find out what services are offered.
