Delivering up to two warm, nutritious meals per day, VNA Meals on Wheels helps homebound seniors maintain their independence and their nutritional well-being.

We deliver Monday through Friday. Hot lunch costs $5.50 per day, and we have an optional light supper that costs an additional $1.85 per day. Financial assistance is available to those who qualify.
