Volunteers do more than drive from door to door delivering nutritious meals. They also deliver smiles, a friendly face, warm greetings and daily encouragement to those that are lonely. In fact, volunteers may be the only person a client sees during the day. What an impact they can make! To volunteer for meal delivery, contact us through our web form or call (515) 465-5316.
Eligibility for Meals on Wheels
Perry Lutheran Homes Meals on Wheels focuses on caring for older adults or others in need who are homebound because of illness, physical or mental impairment, who are unable to shop for food and/or prepare food independently, or who are otherwise isolated.
Meals are available at an already low cost of $8.95, and that cost may be further reduced or eliminated due to a client's financial situation. If a client is eligible, funding assistance is available through partners such as Dallas County, Aging Resources of Central Iowa, and other State of Iowa-funded programs and initiatives, and through the support of the United Way of Central Iowa and generous private contributions from individuals and organizations.
