In order to be considered...

Seniors/ Elderly:  

Age requirement: 60+ (Can vary). If not limited by mobility, we ask to congregate in a group setting such as a senior center, a café, etc. This makes it easier for our volunteers to deliver meals at one time. However, if unable to meet in a group, you may qualify for home delivery!

Handicapped/ Disabled:

Age requirement: None. If the disability is physical, you must be limited in mobility in a way that makes food preparation difficult or impossible. Any other disabilities require a referral letter from a doctor or a social worker in order to deem the individual disabled. 

Veterans:

Age requirement: None. Must be able to provide a valid photo ID that prove veteran status such as a Department of Veterans Affairs ID Card, a Military ID Card, etc.

Single Parents:

Age requirement: None. Must be able to prove single parent status by showing a document that corresponds with current situation such as a Death Certificate if widowed or Divorce Papers if divorced, etc. 

Homeless: 

Age Requirement: None. In order to be considered homeless, the place of residence must be:

  • a place not suitable for human habitation (such as cars, parks, sidewalks, abandoned buildings, etc.),

  • an emergency shelter, in transitional or supportive housing for homeless persons who originally came from the streets or emergency shelters (make sure you have evidence that the person came from the streets or emergency shelter situation), 

  • in any of the above places but is spending a short time (up to 30 consecutive days) in a hospital or other institution,

  • is being evicted within a week (7 days) from a private dwelling unit and no subsequent residence has been identified and the person lacks the resources and support networks needed to obtain housing,
