One in four seniors lives alone, and nearly 9.5 million seniors in America are threatened by hunger. Here in Volusia County, more than 350 screened and trained volunteers, many of whom have been with COA for several years, deliver nutritious meals to local seniors, working tirelessly to promote good nutrition, health, and independence while providing critical social interaction and wellbeing checks.
While most Meals on Wheels clients use the program on a long-term or permanent basis, home-delivered meals are also available on a short-term basis for those people in temporary situations (recovering at home from surgery, etc.).
As funding is available, qualified seniors are eligible for meal services at no charge or with a modest co-payment. To learn if you or your loved one qualifies, please contact Customer Service at 386-253-4700 x 225 or by email.
Meals are also available for purchase on a private pay basis. For instructions on how to order Home Ordered Meals - click here.
