Preparing meals can sometimes be a challenge. Volunteers of America Colorado delivers frozen meals to residents age 60+ living in Fort Collins and Larimer County’s northern towns and communities. The meals are delivered in boxes of five or seven meals and consist of an entrée and accompaniments such as vegetables, fruits, bread, and milk. Meals can be heated in either the oven or microwave. Deliveries are made once a week Monday through Friday, between 10:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Individuals in the program receive their meals on the same day of each week and usually from the same volunteer driver.
“I have my good days when I can cook, and on my bad days you come to the rescue.”
Homebound individuals age 60 and over are eligible to participate in the Meals on Wheels program. In specific circumstances, other individuals may qualify for services. To find out if you are eligible, please contact our office using the contact information below.
There is no charge for receiving this service, however each month an opportunity to donate is provided to program participants. The suggested contribution is $2.50 per meal. No one is denied service due to an inability to contribute.
