Meals on Wheels allows senior adults to remain living on their own even when they are no longer able to prepare hot, nutritional meals.
Trained volunteers visit each weekday around noon, providing Brevard seniors with a hot meal, a friendly visit, and safety check. They can refer participants to additional services and can even initiate an emergency response if necessary.
If you or someone you know is over 60, homebound and nutritionally at-risk, call the program office at (321) 639-8770 and let them know you wish to participate in the Meals On Wheels program. There will be an in-home interview to determine if the applicant qualifies for the program.
These meals are at no cost to eligible seniors, however we depend upon your donations to help off-set the cost of running these services.
For more information about making a special donation or including Meals On Wheels in a will, please call (321) 639-8770.
Make a difference in senior’s lives. Serve the most appreciated meal. Receive more than you give. Bring smiles to homebound seniors. Be one of Brevard County’s most valuable resources.
If you care about the elderly and would like to bring smiles and hot meals to those who are homebound, you can be a Meals On Wheels volunteer! It’s a two-hour commitment one day a week. You just need a car, a driver’s license, and auto insurance. Call 639-8770 or 984-9270 for more information. All volunteers require a Level II background check.
