Home Delivered Meals
Are you a low income, homebound older adult struggling to prepare your own well-balanced meals, without a caregiver to help you?
JABA offers home delivered meal options through Mom's Meals and our partnership with Meals on Wheels. All meals are delivered right to your door. Volunteers provide friendly check-in calls and visits, if you wish.
You may qualify to receive home delivered meals if you are age 60+, low income, unable to leave your home without assistance, unable to prepare your own meals due to disability or ill health, and have no caregiver to prepare well-balanced meals for you. Contact us to find out if you are eligible.
About the Meals
Eating well is a key factor in maintaining your health, energy and independence as you age. If you qualify for JABA’s home delivered meals, you will most likely receive Mom’s Meals, ready-to-heat meals that are delivered to your door. You choose from a wide variety of meals that meet your dietary needs (e.g., heart-friendly, diabetic). In some JABA service areas, we can arrange for individuals to receive Meals on Wheels.
The Problem of Senior Hunger
"Hunger and malnourishment among seniors in America is no joke. The American Academy of Family Physicians has reported that nearly 4 million seniors suffer from malnourishment, and the National Foundation to End Senior Hunger says that 1 senior in 7 is at risk to the threats of hunger. In many cases, this is caused not by poverty, but by seniors not being able to feed themselves — either because they live alone and have trouble cooking or going out to shop, or don't have the close support of family and caregivers."
