Homebound Meal Service

Wise County Committee on Aging, Inc., Meals on Wheels provides meal services to elderly homebound clients in Wise County. Our Meal Service enables clients to enjoy a hot meal delivered to their place of residence.

The main meal consists of meat, potatoes or pasta, and a vegetable. We also provide bread, milk or juice, and dessert. We always provide our clients a copy of the Wise County Messenger Update as well.

Meals are delivered directly to the clients' homes from Monday through Friday between 10:30 A.M. and 1:00 P.M. We deliver frozen meals for our holiday meals and bad weather days.

A Registered Dietitian has reviewed the menus that rotate every five weeks. Up to 75% of our clients' daily nutritional needs can be addressed by our services. Our regular meal is low in sugar and fat, which is acceptable for most diet restrictions.

There is no cost for the meal, but we do accept donations to help alleviate the costs of our program.

We have routes that serve Decatur, Bridgeport, Lake Bridgeport, Runaway Bay, Boyd, Paradise, Newark, Rhome, and Cottondale. Our routes provide over 100 meals a day and cover over 312 miles.

To arrange Meal Service, call our office at

Recent research studies by the Meals on Wheels Association of America have revealed that the problem of senior hunger in America is indeed growing worse.  Currently, one in nine seniors is at risk of hunger in the United States. You can help end this trend by pledging as little as $25.00 per month to adopt one of our senior clients. Your monthly donation, along with donations from others, will help to provide meals for one person per month -- it costs roughly $150 per month to provide meals to a senior. At the end of the year, you will receive a tax statement of your contributions. Won't you help us end this cycle in Wise County? Our older homebound seniors are counting on you. Thanks for your generosity.
