Meals on Wheels are available to anyone age 60 or older, regardless of income. Seniors must be homebound, unable to prepare meals on their own and be willing to receive meals for at least one full week.
It's easy! Just call 503.736.6325 or register on line. Meals are delivered the next business day.
Every state has a Meals on Wheels program, but a variety of nonprofit organizations provide these services. We provide Meals on Wheels service to Multnomah, Washington and Clark counties.
The overall cost of each meal is $3.95. The suggested donation for seniors over the age of 60 is $3.
We have 35 dining rooms throughout the greater metropolitan area where active seniors can join with others for a hot, nutritious meal and good company. Check out our locations .
