Pet Pals

 We understand that pets are part of the family, too.

  • Meals on Wheels clients who have a pet may also be eligible for our pet food program. In this program, volunteers deliver cat food or dog food to the client’s home once a month.
  • Each year, our community volunteers distribute more than 3,000 pounds of pet food to pets of clients in our Meals on Wheels program.
