We depend on people like you to help deliver meals to those who really need and appreciate your help. Meals on Wheels delivery routes are available Monday-Saturday throughout the Denver metro area.
Volunteers of America's Meals on Wheels Program serves Adams, Arapahoe, Clear Creek, Denver, Douglas, Gilpin, Jefferson and Larimer counties. Each meal consists of an entrée and accompaniments such as vegetables, fruits, breads, milk, etc. that are needed to provide at least one-third of the recommended daily nutrients for older adults.
The meals are low in fat and cholesterol and provide the valuable nutrients older adults need without the additional calories. Program services also include nutrition education, information and assistance in accessing other services available to the homebound elderly.
what's on the menu?
An individual must be 60 years of age or older and assessed as homebound to receive Meals on Wheels. Other criteria for eligibility apply in specific limited circumstances.
- To determine if you or someone you know is eligible for Meals on Wheels in Adams, Arapahoe, Denver, Douglas, Jefferson, Gilpin or Clear Creek County call: 303-294-0111.
- If you are in Larimer County call: 970-472-9630 or E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org.
There is no charge for the meals, but individuals who receive Meals on Wheels are asked to contribute what they can afford toward the cost of the meals. However, no one is denied service because of an inability to make a contribution.
