Depending on your location in the County, we are currently delivering either a box of 5 frozen meals once per week OR you will receive a delivery of frozen meals three times per week on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays.  A Meals on Wheels representative will call you after you apply to let you know which type of meal delivery you will receive.  If you receive the box of 5 frozen meals you will be told which day the delivery is coming and you must be home to receive that delivery. 
We will continue with this delivery until we can safely return to a 5 day a week delivery of daily prepared, hot meals. 

Some clients utilize our service while recovering from illness or surgery, while others need meals indefinitely. We do not serve special diet meals, but our clients can adapt our menu to their daily dietary needs.



APPLY TODAY! A prospective applicant, family member, or caregiver can apply to receive meals over the phone. Please call (919) 833-1749 - Monday through Friday between 9:30 and 11:30 am, to begin your application process today.


Hot Meal Delivery Service

Meals on Wheels serves home-delivered meals to residents of Wake County who are 60 years old and over and are homebound and vulnerable. Homebound means the applicant cannot work, volunteer, drive or leave their residence without assistance. Vulnerable means the applicant is unable to perform the basic activities of daily living without assistance due to physical, cognitive, emotional, psychological, or social impairments.

Disabled residents under 60 can qualify for our program if they meet certain criteria. For more information about this service please call (919) 833-1749.
