EAC’s Meals on Wheels Program began delivering life sustaining meals to homebound elderly residents of Westbury, New Casse, Valley Stream and Carle Place in 1989. Since that time, over 1,500,000 meals have nourished frail and sick senior citizens. More than just food, Meals on Wheels drivers and volunteers deliver much needed friendship to those whose age and health have left them very much alone.
- A wide selection of nutritious meals delivered to the home
- Extra food for the weekend
- Birthdays remembered with a card and cake
- Pet food for those with pets
Meals on Wheels helps frail senior citizens improve or maintain their health while staying in the home they love. Meals are a godsend for those who are on dialysis or recovering from cancer or other life threatening illnesses. In 2007, EAC’s Meals on Wheels was awarded the Congressional Hunger Award for helping to eliminate hunger among the homebound elderly.
