Meals on Wheels
The Meals on Wheels program is currently accepting new clients. For more information and to determine your eligibility, please call 914-381-7849 and ask for Alicia Nowlin-Downey.
The Meals on Wheels program provides a nutritious midday meal to senior citizens living in the Town of Mamaroneck, Village of Mamaroneck, and Village of Larchmont who are home-bound and unable to prepare meals for themselves.
Program Eligibility Requirements:
Any resident age 60 or older who is home-bound, ill, disabled, and/or convalescing, and is unable to prepare meals, may be eligible.
Preliminary information can be taken over the phone, however, an initial home visit is required to confirm eligibility in order to begin receiving meals. A follow up home visit is conducted every six months thereafter to determine ongoing eligibility.
If Approved: Once we have all of the necessary information, we will contact you with the details of your meal delivery. Most residents receive their first meal within one to two days.
Meals & Menus
Menus are created by the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services. Click here for the current menu. Meals are prepared by a local caterer. Hot meals generally include:
- Bread and margarine
- Fruit or dessert
- Meat or fish
Cold meals include a sandwich of the day, milk, juice, and fruit or dessert. The menu rotates about every 6 weeks. The full cost of a meal is $7.95. A nominal contribution of $4.00 per meal is requested.
Meals are delivered by volunteers between 11 a.m. and 12 noon, Monday ‐ Friday.
- You must be at home when the meal is delivered.
- Volunteers are not allowed to leave your meal at your home or with a neighbor.
Volunteers are always needed for our Meals on Wheels program. Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, have at least 2 references, have a car, be able to drive, and be available from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on the day they serve. If selected, volunteers will be responsible for delivering meals on one assigned day that fits their schedule every two weeks, or will serve as an on‐call substitute.
The Meals on Wheels program is funded in part by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and is offered through a grant from the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services.
