Homebound Meals:
 

Since 1973 Prescott Meals on Wheels has been delivering well-balanced, nutritional meals to homebound seniors and those with permanent or temporary disabilities.  

Each week day our drivers embark upon their route to deliver meals to Prescott citizens who need assistance. For many of the 200 clients we serve, this will be the only hot meal they will have during the day.

 

As a nation and community, we have a special responsibility to serve vulnerable populations such as the elderly. Many of these Americans were raised in the Great Depression, they fought for our freedom in World War II and went on to make this nation a leader in the World. But in spite of living in “the land of plenty” many of these citizens find it hard to afford, obtain, or prepare the food that they so desperately need to stay healthy.


The challenge is great. Only a third of the funds needed to operate Prescott Meals on Wheels comes from governmental funding, and that is always at risk. For over 40 years the community has supported Prescott Meals on Wheels. In some years, it has been literally hand to mouth. Were it not for the efforts of over 150 volunteers and our sponsors, there is no question that we would be unable to meet the needs of our clients.

Hunger is a serious threat facing millions of seniors in the United States. Understanding hunger is a critical first step to developing strategies to eliminate the pain and suffering it causes. Watch a moving video about senior hunger.

Prescott Meals On Wheels offers two other programs for our homebound clients:
 
The Animeals program consists of donated cat and dog food for our homebound clients. If an individual can not get the store to by themselves food, they can not do for the loved family pets. Only in-kind donations of food is accepted to support this program.
 
 
The Art on Wheels pilot program consists of artists coming into the home to help clients express themselves creatively with positive mental and physical outcomes. The program consists of painting, movement, writing and music.
