Meals on Wheels of Durham, Inc. is a non-profit agency committed to enhancing the quality of life for eligible homebound adults in our community. Their mission is to serve the elderly, frail, disabled, convalescing and others who cannot provide proper nutrition for themselves with the objective of improving the nutritional status and health of these individuals. It is their goal that this combination of nutritious meals and social contact will help clients to remain independent as long as possible.
Dedicated volunteers deliver hot, low-fat meals to clients each weekday --a bag lunch for Saturday is delivered with Friday's hot lunch. Income-eligible individuals receive meals free of charge, while others are asked to pay for part or all of their meals. Durham County Department of Social Services' Adult Services division can arrange subsidized (free) meals for elderly, disabled, or homebound residents; no income requirements, but a home visit will determine need.
