WHAT CAN WE HELP YOU WITH TODAY?
MEALS AND MORE
From providing meals through neighborhood dining sites to home delivery of meals, we do our utmost to help our seniors maintain a healthy and happy lifestyle. Neighborhood dining centers are a great opportunity for our seniors to share with their neighbors while enjoying nutritious meals, recreational activities, and informative speakers. Neighborhood dining centers are open Monday through Friday from 9am to 12:30pm.
Meals on Wheels offers door to door transportation to neighborhood dining, shopping, and medical appointments to ensure that our seniors maintain healthy and active lives. Our transportation services are a vital part in combating isolation and loss of other vital social skills in our seniors, and we are proud to offer them this option. These services are available Monday through Friday from 7:30am to 2:30pm and on a first-come, first-served basis.
NOT JUST FOR SENIORS
Meals on Wheels delivers nutritious breakfast, lunch and snack meals for private schools, childcare and adult daycare programs throughout Central Florida. Catering for private parties, weddings and other special events can be coordinated with our Executive Chef, Delaño Lambertclare.
We also offer our Seminole County seniors a helping hand with their homes. These services include help with yard cleanup, exterior house painting, and installation of grab bars. The work is provided by generous, community minded volunteers, and includes individuals, company teams and civic organizations.
Home weatherization is also available to qualified seniors' homes. As our seniors age, these normally simple tasks become a burden, and we strive to relieve them from the stress so that they can better enjoy their time while keeping their home safe and clean.
The Weatherization Assistance Program aims at lowering the monthly energy burden on low-income households by improving the energy efficiency of the home. All work to be proposed must fall within a specific budget. The Weatherization Program is open to homeowners of all ages in Seminole County who meet certain criteria and income eligibility guidelines. Please contact us to see if you qualify to apply.

Emergency Home Energy Assistance Program
Do you need help with paying your energy bill? If you live in a Central Florida household with at least
one resident who is age 60 or older, you may be eligible for these services. The Emergency Home
Energy Assistance Program for the Elderly (EHEAP), a 100% federally funded program, helps eligible
seniors pay energy bills in an emergency. In partnership with the Department of Elder Affairs, Senior
Resource Alliance, and its partner agencies (Meals on Wheels), along with Central Florida utilities,
EHEAP-eligible residents can receive assistance for energy bills while funds are available.
