The Home Delivered Meal Program provides hot meals during the noon hour in Vanderburgh, Posey, Warrick, Perry, Spencer and Gibson counties. There are sixteen home delivered meal routes.
Meals delivered Monday- Thursday. We are currently not delivering one day a week due to funding cuts however our home delivered clients will receive a frozen meal with their delivered meal to be heated up for consumption on the off day.
Meals are packaged in a tray with a film top. They can be placed in a microwave or conventional oven to be heated up.
Meals are provided on a contribution basis. There is no set fee or charge for a meal.
A suggested contribution for Title III meals is $3.50 per meal.
Cash, checks and food stamp vouchers are accepted.
