Meals On Wheels - (585) 787-8397

We have recently become aware of an individual going door to door in the City of Rochester and telling people he is collecting money for Meals on Wheels. This is a scam. Contributions and payments are never collected in person.

Our recipes and menus are designed by a registered dietitian. Meals are lower in sodium and fat than many commercially-prepared options and each meal provides one-third of the daily dietary reference intake of nutrients. We also offer no concentrated sweets, low lactose, ground, and kosher options.

Friendly Visits

Meals are delivered by screened, compassionate, and caring volunteers who are always ready with a pleasant greeting and a warm smile.

Safety Checks

Volunteers notify office staff if a participant doesn’t come to the door to accept a meal or if something seems amiss. Office staff, in turn, will notify a participant’s emergency contact – a local family member, friend, or neighbor – of the situation. Gives peace of mind to loved ones who can't always be there.
