Meals on Wheels

-A A +A

The Meals on Wheels program provides a nutritious midday meal to senior citizens living in the Town of Mamaroneck, Village of Mamaroneck, and Village of Larchmont who are homebound and unable to prepare meals for themselves.

Eligibility

Any resident age 60 or older who is homebound, ill, disabled, and/or convalescing, and is unable to prepare meals, may be eligible.

To Apply

Preliminary information can be taken over the phone, however, an initial home visit is required to confirm eligibility in order to begin receiving meals. A follow up home visit is conducted every six months thereafter to determine ongoing eligibility.

Once Approved

Once we have all of the necessary information, we will contact you with the details of your meal delivery. Most residents receive their first meal within one to two days.

Meals and Menus 

Menus are created by the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services. Click here for the current menu. Meals are prepared by Lunch with Lou, a local caterer. Hot meals generally include: meat or fish, vegetables, salads, milk, juice, fruit or dessert, bread and margarine. Cold meals include a sandwich of the day, milk, juice, and fruit or dessert. The menu rotates about every six weeks. The full cost of a hot meal is $5.92. The full cost of a hot meal and a cold meal is $7.98. A nominal contribution of $3.25 per meal is requested. 

Delivery Information 

Meals are delivered by volunteers between 11:00am and 1:00 pm, Monday ‐ Friday. Please note: 

  • You must be at home when the meal is delivered.  
  • Volunteers are not allowed to leave your meal at your home or with a neighbor.  

Volunteer Opportunities 

Volunteers are always needed for our Meals on Wheels program.  Volunteers must be at least 18 years old, have at least 2 references, have a car, be able to drive, and be available from 11:00 am to 1:00 pm on the day they serve.  If selected, volunteers will be responsible for delivering meals on one assigned day that fits their schedule every two weeks, or will serve as an on‐call substitute.  

The Meals on Wheels program is funded in part by the US Department of Health and Human Services and is offered through a grant from the Westchester County Department of Senior Programs and Services.
