Meals on Wheels is more than just a meal. The primary goal of Meals on Wheels is to help seniors stay independent longer in their own homes. This is accomplished through providing diabetic, low sodium meals and safety checks, giving peace of mind to their family members. There is a proven reduction of hospital readmittance when seniors are provided Meals on Wheels services. For this and many other reasons, Meals on Wheels Nemaha County is looking to expand our services beyond our current borders to include all Nemaha County residents.
We are undergoing a capital campaign to provide enhanced services to all Nemaha County residents ages 60 and above regardless of income. We have reached the capacity of our current building and in need of more space. The new building will provide ample space to cook for more residents, house larger freezers for the frozen meals program and allow us to serve residents outside of our current radius. The new building will also be a resource hub for seniors to come and do outreach as well as work with community partners to provide education and socialization opportunities. We are excited about this expansion and we hope you will join us in helping our communities!
