Where we get better with age
MSHL adopted the Meals on Wheels service from Aid in Milan in 2015 and has grown to three delivery routes in the Greater Milan Area. Volunteers deliver hot lunches and refrigerated dinners on your choice of days, Monday-Friday.
To receive meals, you must be 60 years old or better and homebound, which means you are unable to leave your home under normal circumstances. If you or your loved one fits this description, you are encouraged to register for the program by calling MSHL at 734-508-6229 or filling out the form to the right. After your information is received, we will call you to arrange a start date.
You must be present to receive your meal, so if you are going to be out of the house for a doctor’s appointment, call the office to cancel your meal or ask for your meal to be held at the senior center for pick up.
A requested donation of $3.00 per meal is encouraged and donation letters will be sent at the end of the month. This donation letter can be sent to the client or to a caregiver/family member.
Meals on Wheels is funded through Washtenaw County’s Senior Nutrition Program.
MSHL as an organization is closed for federal holidays listed below. Frozen meals will be offered the business day before the holiday so you still have something nutritious to eat. New Year’s Day*, MLK Day, Presidents Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day, Columbus Day, Veterans Day, Thanksgiving Day* and the Friday after, Christmas Eve, Christmas Day*, and New Year’s Eve.
For driver safety, in the case of extreme weather, MSHL reserves the right to cancel Meals on Wheels services. In this event, anyone who is supposed to receive will be notified as soon as possible and encourage to eat one of the provided emergency meals.
*On starred days we have a special volunteer who delivers a hot meal.
We always need volunteers for this service! If you are interested in volunteering in the kitchen or delivering the meals, please call and ask to speak with Beverly, the Senior Nutrition Program Coordinator, or message us through the contact page.
