Any of the following individuals are eligible to receive home-delivered meals:
1) a person aged 60 or older who is frail and essentially homebound by reasons of illness, disability, or isolation, for which an assessment concludes that participation is in the individual's best interest.
2) the spouse of a person eligible for an HDM as described above, regardless of age or condition, if an assessment concludes that it is in the best interest of the homebound older individual.
3) a disabled individual who resides at home with an eligible older individual participating in the program
You pay by making a donation toward the cost of the meal. You must decide how much to give according to how much you can afford and how important the meals are to you. The cost of your meal is approximately $12.67 (which includes the costs of food, delivery, equipment, wages and administration). While part of the meals cost is paid by federal, state and county tax dollars, we depend on the donations of the people who receive the meals to help cover the expenses of this service. The suggested donation is $5.00 per meal. No eligible participant will be denied a meal based on ability to contribute toward the cost of the meal.
