Meals on Wheels

Meals on Wheels brings meals to people over 60 who are homebound and unable to prepare their own meals. The menu is varied and the meals are nutritionally balanced, cooked without added salt, and consists of an entrée, two sides, dessert, milk, bread and margarine. We offer soft, ground, pureed, low-lactose, renal, and cardiac menus. We also offer a modified meal for people with diabetes.  Meals are delivered between 9 AM and Noon, Monday through Friday, except holidays. If you’re isolated and homebound, you can arrange for frozen meals that you can use over the weekend.

We ask for a small donation per meal to help us pay for the program. But we never deny anyone a meal if they can't afford to donate.

It’s easy to start delivery of Meals on Wheels. Simply call Information & Referral at 781-599-0110.

Community Cafés

Throughout our service area, you will find places to enjoy a healthy, affordable meal usually located within a local senior center or housing facility. These Community Cafés provide an opportunity for you to get together with your friends... meet new people... have a reason to get up and out... enjoy a hot, nutritious meal at a reasonable price... stretch your budget... maybe play a game of cards.

Transportation to some sites can be arranged. Please call your nearest site for details. During bad weather, call GLSS at 781-599-0110 for site closing information.
