Meals on Wheels


Pullman Community Council on Aging, in partnership with the Council on Aging & Human Services, provides hot, nutritious, noon meals to home-bound seniors in Pullman.  These meals are delivered by volunteers 365 days a year.  Both agencies are private, non-profit agencies which do not make any money on the Meals on Wheels program. The suggested recipient donation is $3.00 per meal, which does not fully cover the total meal cost.  We rely on other sources and donations to make up the difference.

 Value of Meals on Wheels

  •  

    For seniors, poor nutrition is a leading cause of a deteriorating quality of life that can lead to the need for long term care. Nationally, 85% of older Americans have some type of chronic disease that could be improved by better nutrition.

     

  • In addition to the nutritional value, Meals on Wheels delivery facilitates a daily contact with a caring volunteer and provides a wellness check of the participant (client).

  • Meals on Wheels helps seniors retain their independence and the ability to remain in their own home.  They can also help restore health and hasten recuperation during a convalescent period.

Referrals 

  • Referrals are generally made by doctors, social workers or other concerned individuals, but self-referrals are also encouraged.  An initial assessment, as well as periodic reassessments, will be made to determine eligibility.

Meals 

  • Are prepared at Bishop Place under contract to the Council on Aging & Human Services. 

  • Are generally delivered by volunteers between 11:20 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.

  • Are nutritious, well-balanced, and meet one-third of the daily minimum nutritional requirements.

 Additional Donations

  • As with most Meals on Wheels programs, donations by program recipients do not fully cover the costs. 

  • A thoughtful donation can help us to maintain a viable program for our vulnerable elders.
