MEALS ON WHEELS


Our most recognized program, Meals on Wheels is a service of ADTS that allows seniors to live more nourished and independent lives by providing nutritious food, a safety check and a daily visit to Rockingham County seniors. The program is much more than a meal as it aims to increase quality of life, reduce unnecessary ER visits, hospitalizations and premature institutionalization. Meals on Wheels is a community based program, relying on more than 600 volunteers to ensure meals are delivered Monday-Friday all throughout Rockingham County. We have two delivery programs, dependent upon location:

Inside the City Limits
You will be placed on one of our eight hot, daily delivery routes Volunteers deliver the meal Monday – Friday before the noontime hour

Outside the City Limits
You will be placed on our frozen meal program which has distribution points throughout the County Meals are picked up by a family member or delivered by a volunteer every two weeks (Check out a Sample Meal Calendar.)

Program Eligibility
In order to qualify for the Meals on Wheels program you must meet the following criteria:
- Rockingham County resident

As the demand for meals increases and the population of seniors grows, we maintain a waiting list for the Meals on Wheels service. We are thankful for all the community support that helps fund this program.
