A nutritious mid-day meal is available for Bergen County Senior citizens at any of the 26 nutrition centers or if eligible, through the Meals on Wheels program. Suggested donated: $1.25 per meal.

Bergen County Meals on Wheels

The goal of the home delivered meal program is to maintain health through improved nutrition and enable homebound senior citizens to remain in the community with independence and dignity.

To be eligible, persons must be age 60 or older; homebound and unable to leave home without the assistance of another person; unable to shop or prepare a nutritious meal for oneself and have no one to assist with meals; receive no more than 4-hours of in-home assistance during the day; not a Medicaid recipient of Managed Long Term Support Services (MLTSS).

A complete mid-day meal is delivered to participants Monday-Friday. Each meal consists of entrée (meat, vegetable, potato), juice, milk, bread and dessert. Meals are planned by a nutritionist to provide recommended nutrients.

For more information or to apply for home delivered meals, please call (201) 336-7420. Office hours are Monday-Friday 8:00am-4:00pm.

About jwatrel

I am a free-lance writer and Blogger. I am the author of the book "Firehouse 101" ( 2005) part of trilogy of books centered in New York City. My next book "Love Triangles" is finished being edited and should be ready for release in the Fall. My latest book, "Dinner at Midnight", a thriller is on its last chapter. My long awaited book explains the loss of the 2004 Yankee game to Boston. I work as a Consultant, Adjunct College Professor, Volunteer Fireman and Ambulance member and Blogger. I have a blog site for caregivers called 'bergencountycaregiver', a step by step survival guide to all you wonderful folks taking care of your loved ones, a walking project to walk every block, both sides, of the island of Manhattan "MywalkinManhattan" and discuss what I see and find on the streets of New York and three sites to accompany it. One is an arts site called "Visiting a Museum", where I showcase small museums, historical sites and parks that are off the beaten track both in Manhattan and outside the city to cross reference with "MywalkinManhattan" blog site. Another is "DiningonaShoeStringNYC", featuring small restaurants I have found on my travels in this project, that offer wonderful meals for $10.00 and under. So be on the lookout for updates on all three sites and enjoy 'MywalkinManhattan'. The third is my latest site, "LittleShoponMainStreet", which showcases all the unique and independent shops that I have found on my travels throughout and around Manhattan. I have started two new blog sites for the fire department, one "EngineOneHasbrouck HeightsFireDepartmentnj" for the Hasbrouck Heights Fire Department to discuss what our Engine Company is doing and the other is "BergenCountyFireman'sHomeAssociation" for the Bergen County Fireman's Association, which fire fighters from Bergen County, NJ, go to the Fireman's Home in Boonton, NJ to bring entertainment and cheer to our fellow brother fire fighters quarterly.
