Our Service Area

Meals on Wheels has four food-based programs that provide meals to the Lynchburg homebound community and beyond! Check our service area map, or call the office to see if we serve you.

 Lunch Program

Five days a week and on most holidays, lunches are delivered by volunteers in their own vehicles and at their own expense. This is our core program that every recipient receives.

What is Served?

Our hot lunch is prepared fresh daily, never frozen, and consists of meat, vegetable, salad or fruit, bread, beverage, and dessert. All menus are reviewed by a registered dietitian. Each meal is heart healthy and diabetic friendly, and special dietary needs are met when possible.

Supper Service

When medically indicated, a cold supper meal is delivered along with lunch, to be consumed for the evening meal.

Saturday Meals

When medically indicated, Saturday Meals are delivered to those on the most restrictive diets (i.e. renal diets) helping them maintain good health.

Nutritional supplements

Nutritional supplements (Ensure or similar products) are provided to individuals who meet specific need/criteria.

Is there a fee?

Yes; however we incorporate a sliding scale for our service, and fees are based on the recipient’s ability to pay. A large percentage of recipients receive service at no cost to them.
