Meals on Wheels help older adults maintain good health & remain living at home
Through LSS Meals on Wheels, a part of the national Meals on Wheels network, we provide hot, nutritious meals paired with a friendly visit and safety check for Minnesotans age 60 and older.
Meals on Wheels:
Consistent well-balanced meals can boost your immune system, reduce your risk for many health-related conditions and prevent the need for premature nursing home or assisted living care.
Our affordable meals are available to older adults age 60 and older for a suggested donation.
Our volunteers personally greet and get to know each person when they deliver the fresh, hot meals. Older adults enjoy the friendly, personal interaction which for many is the only person they see or speak to all day.
Family members gain peace of mind in knowing that someone is checking on their loved one daily. If the delivery volunteer notices anything of concern, with the older adult's permission, we can notify family members.
Hot, nutritious meals are typically delivered daily Monday through Friday. Frozen meals are available for weekends, holidays and other closure days.
You choose your delivery schedule. You can choose to have a hot meal delivered daily by a friendly volunteer or choose a combination of hot meals and frozen meals delivered on the days that work best for you.
