Meals on Wheels has been an important part of senior care in Yellowstone County for well over a quarter century. Nationally the program got its start some 60 years ago in Philadelphia.

It provides a nutritious, well-balanced meal to those over 60 years old who are homebound, unable to prepare a balanced meal or have no one available to prepare a meal. Eligibility is on a case-by-case basis.

But it’s more than a meal, it’s a connection to the outside world, all done by a team of volunteers.
