Meals on Wheels 2016 member badge
The Senior Resource Association's (SRA) Meals on Wheels program provides hot, nutritious meals to homebound seniors who are unable to shop or cook for themselves, helping them maintain a healthy lifestyle and remain living independently in their homes as long as possible.


About Meals on Wheels

Volunteers deliver meals to clients' homes Monday through Friday, between 10:30 a.m. and 2:30 p.m., also providing a daily safety check and friendly interaction. Full week or partial week service is available as well as frozen meals for the weekends. Our registered dietitian and staff provide nutrition education to all meal recipients on a monthly basis.

While many seniors are eligible to receive Meals on Wheels through funded programs, these funds are subject to availability.  SRA also makes Meals on Wheels available on a private pay basis. You may download a Private Pay Application for more information.

 

Pet Meals on Wheels

 


Pet Meals on Wheels is offered to eligible Meals on Wheels recipients at no cost.  Pet owners receive a monthly supply of pet food delivered by our volunteers.

The Pet Meals on Wheels program is generously supported by a grant from Banfield Charitable Trust. Pet Meals on Wheels is a collaborative effort and is supported with in-kind donations from the Humane Society of Vero Beach and Indian River County, Dogs for Life Vero Beach and Halo Rescue Sebastian.
