How to Get Meals

Our staff will set up a time to meet with you in your home to discuss menu selection, delivery, payment, and other logistics related to our services to tailor our program to your needs.

 

Pricing and Payment

  • Meals are currently priced at $4.75.

  • Assistance programs are available for those who qualify based on income.

  • Invoices are sent in arrears (at the end of each month of meals), so consumers are not expected to pay upon each delivery or in advance.

  • Our agency accepts food stamps, cash, check, online payment, and money orders.

 

Additional Services

  • Meals On Wheels of Greater Lafayette partners with Food Finders to deliver additional food items such as produce and bread at no cost to our clients that are considered food-insecure.

  • To these clients, we also occasionally provide free cleaning supplies and toiletry items.

  • Chocolate, Vanilla, or Strawberry Ensure drinks are also available for purchase in cases of 24 for $25.

  • For many clients, Meals On Wheels can serve as a daily check-in. If we notice something of concern during deliveries, we can call an emergency contact to make sure all is well with the client.
