Liberty Meals on Wheels
Liberty Meals on Wheels delivers much more than just a meal to its recipients. At the core of our service is a nutritious meal, friendly visit and safety check for seniors living within the city limits of Liberty. Meals are delivered by our amazing group of permanent and substitute volunteer drivers who donate their lunch break to help recipients in need.
Liberty Meals on Wheels focuses on caring for individuals whose diminished mobility makes it hard to shop for food, prepare meals or socialize with others. People who are mobile enough to join others for meals in a group setting are encourage to do so. Liberty Silver Center serves a daily lunch and has many activities to keep seniors moving and socially involved. Seniors or disabled persons who are less mobile may qualify for Meals on Wheels home delivery.
