Meals on Wheels
Since 1971, Family Services' Meals on Wheels program has provided food and friendship to frail, homebound elderly and disabled individuals living throughout Western Montgomery County. Each weekday, our volunteers deliver a hot lunch and cold supper to an average of 160 individuals in Pottstown, Royersford and the Lower Perkiomen Valley, making Family Services’ Meals on Wheels program the largest in Montgomery County.
With two-thirds of the recommended daily requirements provided each day, many Meals on Wheels clients find their physical and mental health improves after being on the program for a short time. All meals are low in salt, sugar, cholesterol and fat, and special dietary meals are available.
At the core of the program is the hard work and dedication of our volunteers. Not only do our volunteers pack and deliver meals, but they also greet each client with a smiling face and kind word. In fact, for many of our clients, this program is often their only contact with the outside world and acts as a watchful eye to one of our most vulnerable populations.
As the senior population in the western portion of Montgomery County continues to grow, Family Services’ Meals on Wheels program strives to support the goal of the Meals on Wheels Association of America — that no senior goes to bed hungry.
