Home Delivered Meals are provided in the home to eligible persons (60 and older) who are home bound due to illness or incapacitating disability. In addition, individuals must be unable to obtain food or prepare meals for themselves and have no responsible person to assist them with this task.
According to the Meals on Wheels website, 1 in 6 seniors in America faces the threat of hunger and 1 in 4 lives alone in isolation. Meals on Wheels is the program that tries to reach out to this senior population.
Consumer contributions are welcome. However, those unable to contribute will not be denied service.
A referral can be made by calling 910-989-3013.
In order to keep this program running, volunteers are a must!
The main requirement is to be willing to deliver hot, nutritious meals to home bound older adults in the following areas of Onslow County:
Blue Creek / Pony Farm
Piney Green / Pumpkin Center
Each driver is given a reasonable route, and can volunteer for one day a week, or several days a week.
Call 910-989-3006 for more information and to volunteer.
