Meals on Wheels
Meals on Wheels is a community service that delivers nutritious meals to your home with the help of volunteers. Meals on Wheels is available to all persons regardless of age or ability. This is a wonderful way for individuals to stay connected to their communities, remain healthy, and live independently, for as long as possible as well as those with a short term need for meals after a hospitalization/surgery.
The White Bear Area Senior Program has operated Meals on Wheels for White Bear Lake Area School District residents for 37 years. Community volunteers deliver meals at lunchtime, Monday through Friday.
You may choose hot meals, fresh, frozen or a combination. Frozen meals are delivered once a week. Hot or fresh meals are delivered daily. Special diets are available including, but not limited to, diabetic, low cholesterol, gluten free, and renal. Each meal provides a minimum of 1/3 of the current daily recommended dietary allowances.
A typical meal includes a main entrée with a protein (meat) and 2 vegetables (possibly a side salad), a beverage choice of 1% milk or juice, bread, and dessert. All meals come with condiments to complete the meal.
Meals on Wheels delivers more than a nutritious meal to your door. Friendly interaction with a background checked delivery volunteer also provides a safety check, peace of mind, and a connection with the community.
Meals are provided at a reduced rate due to generous donations from participants, foundations, and the wider community, and also through support of the White Bear Lake Area School District, Consortium of Lake Area Senior Services, Ramsey County, Metro Meals on Wheels, local Lions Clubs and others.
