Pet Pals

The Pet Pals program provides a monthly supply of pet food to Meals on Wheels clients who have a pet.

We understand that pets are part of the family, too. They are a source of companionship and comfort for home-bound adults. We want to be sure that our Meals on Wheels clients can care for their pets without sacrificing their own well-being.
