Home Delivered Meals, also known as Meals on Wheels, provides meals to homebound seniors who are at high nutritional risk. 

Eligible clients receive up to seven home delivered meals per week:

  • One hot meal on delivery day and up to six frozen meals  
  • Clients may also be assessed for participation in the Second Home Delivered Meal Program.  Eligible participants may receive an additional seven meals per week. 
  • Home Delivered Meals clients receive two shelf-stable meals a year for use in the event of emergency or severe weather.

Eligibility Criteria:   Participants must be 60 years of age or older, homebound due to illness, disability or geographic isolation and unable to attend a congregate meal site.

  • All HDM clients will be visited by a Washoe County Senior Services program staff to be certified regarding the need for service.
  • Program participants are re-certified periodically, as required by the funding agency, to assure program resources are being appropriately allocated.
