Applicants must be 60+ years old and homebound or disabled (for example, the applicant is not able to operate appliances, such as ovens or microwaves.)
To apply, applicants must complete an application with SEICAA Meals on Wheels staff over the phone. Our staff will discuss the different types of assistance programs applicants may qualify for (see below), as well as further steps needed to determine eligibility.
- The Subsidized Elderly Meal Program is exclusively for homebound individuals who meet the program’s Federal guidelines. Meal costs are paid through federal funding.
- The Private Pay Program is reserved for individuals who are not eligible for the other programs or who choose to pay full price for their meals.
Meals offered meet 1/3 of the Recommended Dietary Allowance (RDA) requirements, set by local dieticians. Weekend and holiday meals are available. Our staff update participant information daily with meal contents, delivery instructions, and dietary restrictions.
