Fresh, hot, nutritious meals are delivered to your home by volunteers, Monday through Friday, between 11 a.m. and 12:30 p.m. Frozen meals are available for delivery on Friday if you need meals for the weekends as well. Broomfield Meals on Wheels is an official member of Meals on Wheels America.
Am I eligible for Meals on Wheels?
Broomfield residents 60 years or older, at any income level, who are homebound and/or live alone, and are unable to prepare meals for themselves are eligible for this service.
Caregiving family members who reside at the same address may also qualify for Meals on Wheels.
Individuals under the age of 60 may qualify with a medical referral. Short-term or temporary service with a minimum of five days is available for those individuals recuperating from a recent hospitalization and/or serious illness.
A short phone intake is conducted before receiving meals. The length of service is determined by your need. There is no time limit and service is available on a short-term basis or over a prolonged period. Service will begin within 24 business hours.
If you are receiving Meals on Wheels, any changes or cancellations regarding meal delivery must be provided a minimum of 24 hours in advance. If an individual does not answer when delivery is attempted, a Senior Services staff member will be notified. A follow-up will be conducted by the Broomfield Police Department if we are unable to reach your emergency contact on file.
There is a charge of $4 per hot meal and $2 per frozen meal (no sides), and these charges are billed monthly. If the cost of these meals is a financial hardship for you, financial assistance may be available and determined by a Senior Services staff member.
