About Meal Delivery
Daily meals, consisting of a hot meal and a breakfast/sandwich bag, are delivered to the client’s door by trained volunteers, who are often the only people our clients see on a daily basis. Meal recipients also receive a week’s supply of milk and orange juice. Diets are prepared under the supervision of a professional nutritionist.
There are several Meals on Wheels organizations throughout the State of Delaware (and several thousand nationwide). Our statewide agencies have no corporate affiliation with one another but are all under contract with the State of Delaware, Delaware Health and Social Services, Division of Services for Aging and Adults with Physical Disabilities (DSAAPD).
DSAAPD is the primary source of program funding and the provider of coordinated supervision and uniformity in regulatory administration for all of the Delaware agencies.
