About Meals On Wheels, a program of UR Medicine Home Care
Visiting Nurse Service established the local Meals On Wheels program, the third oldest in the United States, in 1958 and has since served millions of meals. The program ensures that over 1,400 individuals throughout the year receive safety checks during the day and delivers approximately 215,000 meals per year. For many seniors and homebound residents who cannot get to a store or stand in a kitchen for long periods of time, Meals On Wheels is essential for their health and well-being. All meals are overseen by a registered dietician and contain one third of a senior’s daily recommended dietary allowances. For more information about donating, call (585) 787-8748. To volunteer, call 585-787-TEAM (8326) or visit urmhomecare.org.
