Natrona County Meals On Wheels
Natrona County Meals On Wheels serves one or two meals each Monday through Friday to seniors in our community that are homebound or unable to prepare food for themselves due to illness or disability. Not only do we deliver hot nutritious meals but we also provide well-being checks, and friendly social interaction. Approximately 550 meals are prepared fresh each day. Volunteers deliver hot, nutritious meals Monday through Friday between 10:30am and 1:00pm, as well as frozen evening and weekend meals which can be conveniently reheated in a microwave or conventional oven. Every meal is required to meet one third of the dietary guidelines set by the USDA. Natrona County Meals On Wheels also prepares meals for seniors requiring special diets including but not limited to: diabetes, renal, diverticulitis, GERD, celiac, drug interaction, ground, puree, cut-up, low sodium, high calorie, and vegetarian.
Natrona County Meals On Wheels is partially funded by Federal and State grants received through the Older Americans Act. This grant does not allow NCMOW to “charge” a fee for services. No eligible senior will ever be denied meals based on their ability to contribute
