The Senior Services of Ramsey County coordinates Meals on Wheels of Ramsey County, a network providing Meals on Wheels to every inch of Ramsey County. Thousands of older adults and people living with physical and mental disabilities are able to live in their own homes and neighborhoods because of the network of 8 community based organizations and school districts working cooperatively to provide Meals on Wheels and other senior services throughout the County.
Through this innovative and successful partnership, Ramsey County residents in need of Meals on Wheels are given the option of hot, nutritious meals delivered daily, or once a week delivery of a wide selection of frozen meals. Meals are made locally in the Meals on Wheels kitchen.
While the meals and nutrition are important, for many the daily personal contact of our volunteers and professional staff provides a vital safety net. Family members tell us they find great comfort in knowing their older adult will get the nutrition they need and a friendly check-in.
By working together, the Consortium provides resources, training, networking, and support to it's member agencies, thus maximizing limited resources, promoting best practices and high standards, and ensuring that all in need have access to services.
Many of those served by the Consortium members live on incomes below poverty. It is only through volunteers and financial support from the public are we able to provide meals to all, regardless of their financial limitations.
