According to the Meals on Wheels website
, nearly 9 million seniors face the threat of hunger and 1 in 4 lives alone. Our Home Delivered Meals Program is set up to help address both of these issues.
Home Delivered Meals are provided, in the home, to eligible persons (60 and older) who are home bound due to illness or incapacitating disability. In addition, individuals must be unable to obtain food or prepare meals for themselves and have no responsible person to assist them with this task.
Consumer contributions are welcome. However, those unable to contribute will not be denied service.
A referral can be made by calling 910-989-3013.
In order to keep this program running, volunteers are a must!
The main requirement is to be willing to deliver hot, nutritious meals to home bound older adults in the following areas of Onslow County:
- Blue Creek / Pony Farm
- Catherine Lake
- Piney Green / Pumpkin Center
- Sneads Ferry
Each driver is given a reasonable route, and can volunteer for one day a week, or several days a week.
Call 910-989-3006 for more information and to volunteer.
