Meals on Wheels

Home-bound seniors (age 60 and over) may be eligible to receive healthy lunches delivered to their door. After referrals are placed, hot lunches will be delivered between 10:00 am – 1:00 pm. Special diets and textures are available, as well as, the option of cold dinners and double meals, as needed.

A $3.00 donation per meal is suggested to help cover costs. However, no one is denied a meal if unable to pay.

To enroll or if interested please call Ellington Human Services at 860.870.3128
