Prepared meals are available for weekday delivery to qualifying seniors on a short or long-term basis. Meals are prepared by a local restaurant and are not available in specific dietary restrictions.
A volunteer delivers the meal to the senior's door. If the volunteer does not receive a response at the door at the time of delivery, the senior's emergency contact is notified.
The cost is $7, but a reduced fee is available for those who qualify. View sample menu.
To REQUEST home delivered meals, contact your Case Manager or call 972-446-2100.
To CANCEL a meal, call 972-446-2100.
