Meals on Wheels
Serving Our Older Adult Community
Meals on Wheels
This service is an integral part of RASP's mission and commitment to serving disabled and older adults in our community. It is more than just a meal; Meals on Wheels is a critical wellness visit by volunteers, a nutritious hot or frozen meal for homebound older and disabled adults, and a means of connecting older adults to other community services through the initial and annual home assessment done by the RASP Service Coordinator.
Advance registration is required to start this service. There is a fee and you may qualify for a sliding fee amount based on your annual income. To enroll in Meals on Wheels, call 651-318-9091. Current clients can call 651-604-3524.
Mary's Meals on Wheels Story
A Meal and So Much More
For more than 50 years, Helen has lived in the Roseville home she built with her husband and raised her children in. She’s gone from being active Meals on Wheels volunteer to receiving daily meals. Her son, Tom, says that without Meals on Wheels, he worries his mom would live off of donuts and chocolate. With Meals on Wheels, Tom can rest easy knowing that his mom is guaranteed one square meal a day. Since Helen is often the last stop on the delivery route, volunteers regularly stay and visit awhile. The social time is often the highlight of Helen’s day, and she makes sure each volunteer feels welcomed by giving them each a handful of kisses—the chocolate kind.
“It helps in that it gets company here more so than the meal itself. I enjoy company.” — Helen
