Keeping Seniors healthier longer is the primary mission of the Meals on Wheels of C.E.F.S. Program

Since adequate nutrition is critical to health, functioning, and the quality of life, Meals On Wheels of C.E.F.S. is an important component of home and community-based services for seniors over 60 years of age.   

Congregate programs promote dignity and independence for seniors. The group dining program provides a socially interactive network which promotes mentally healthy activity and decreases creeping isolation and depression.  Group dining provides a healthy meal, friendship, and fun to seniors over 60 years of age. 

A home-delivered meal is so much more than a meal...it not only provides a hot nutritious meal but just as importantly, provides a daily check on the home-bound senior by a caring volunteer on a daily basis.  A hot nutritious meal and a few moments of companionship can sometimes be enough to prevent early institutionalization for home-bound seniors.
