Meals on Wheels
The Senior Meals / Meals on Wheels program is OCWCOG’s largest program – serving more than 2,119 seniors and people with disabilities last year in our tri-county region of Benton, Lincoln, and Linn Counties. In total, more than 232,000 meals were served.
The Senior Meals dining room program serves hot, nutritious, midday meals, and offers companionship to seniors who are at least 60 years of age and their spouses, and to Native Americans who are at least 55 years of age. These meals are served in locations throughout Benton, Lincoln, and Linn Counties. Learn more about Senior Meal Dining Center location, hours, and site manager information.
Meals on Wheels
The Meals on Wheels program is designed for homebound seniors and people with disabilities under 60 who receive Medicaid services, and are unable to get to a dining room in their community. Our home delivered meals are delivered by volunteer Meals on Wheels drivers.
