Our facilities provide meals to eligible home-bound adults 60 years of age and older residing in Brunswick County. Eligible recipients receive a hot, mid-day meal delivered to their homes on weekdays.
Meals on Wheels services can be received by submitting a request for an in-home assessment by our Aging Resources Specialists to determine eligibility.
The Meals on Wheels program relies on a dedicated team of volunteers to deliver a meal, friendly visits, and so much more to homebound seniors throughout Brunswick County.
