Meals on Wheels Mesa County Covid-19 Response
Meals on Wheels Mesa County is dedicated to continuing service to the 1,500 seniors it serves annually. With that being said, there have been some changes:
Dining Sites: The majority of our sites are now closed to the general public. If you live on-site you are still able to receive meals through a "grab n go" service.
New Drive-Thru Option: With the majority of our sites being closed, we have opened a drive-thru at our main facility on Chipeta Ave. You must make a reservation by 4:00 pm the day before you want to dine by calling 970-243-9844. This service is open to any senior age 60 and above.
Home Delivered Meals: Are now being bagged up and left on door handles for a contact free delivery.
New Weekly Frozen Meals: Because of limitations in our kitchen, we're not able to provide a hot meal to everyone who wants one in this current crisis. We may be able to provide a box of 5 frozen meals that are specially designed to meet the needs of seniors.
New Partnerships: We understand that most of our seniors are unable to make it to the store. Because of that we've partnered with local food banks to provide a food box once a month when available.
We understand that these are trying times, and we will do our best to provide uninterrupted service. Please know that there may be times when the food we deliver doesn't exactly match what's on the menu, or that sometimes deliveries may arrive later than usual. We ask that you give us the grace to make it through, and that you join us in prayer for the health and safety of all our clients, volunteers, and staff.
