Are you or a loved one home-bound?  Do you worry as to whether your loved one is getting a hot meal everyday?  Does thinking of
making something for lunch or dinner seem daunting to you or a loved one?  If you have answered yes to one or more of these questions, consider taking advantage of Senior Monongalians' Home Delivered Meals Program.

How does the Home Delivered Meals Program work?

posted Apr 8, 2014, 11:55 AM by Senior Monongalians   [ updated Aug 31, 2017, 9:41 AM ]

When you call in to apply for the 

program, someone from our  social services department will make an appointment to visit you at home for an evaluation.  After acceptance into the program, participants receive one hot meal

Monday through Friday.  Follow-up evaluations usually occur within six to twelve months, unless other arrangements are made.  To apply for the Home Delivered Meals Program, contact Cathy at 
304-296-9812.

How and where are the meals prepared?

posted Apr 8, 2014, 11:51 AM by Senior Monongalians

Our kitchen staff prepares all the meals that are delivered to our homebound participants.  After the meals are cooked they are individually packaged in air-tight containers.  As delivery time approaches, meals are loaded into hot boxes and then onto our hot and cold delivery truck.  This process ensures a health department approved temperature until final delivery.  Our drivers will deliver meals to participants between the hours of 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m.
