Home Delivered Meals - Meals on Wheels
OPC’s Meals on Wheels program is designed for seniors unable to shop and/or prepare meals. MOW allows a senior to age in place, encouraging independence for those who wish to remain in their home for as long as possible. OPC’s MOW Program is more than a meal. Volunteers provide a wellness check in addition to delivering a hot, nutritious meal to homebound seniors. There is no waiting list, and meals are received within 24 hours of request.
