Meals on Wheels
Citrus County Support Services has been delivering meals to the homebound since 1979. In fact, our first group of volunteers delivered only 13 meals in the entire county. A lot has changed since 1979, and due to the overwhelming need for service, our agency now provides over 400 meals on a daily basis.
Our goal is to provide a hot, noon time meal, Monday through Friday, which meets at least 30% of the average adult daily nutritional requirements. The vast majority of our meals are delivered by dedicated volunteer drivers.
As an additional feature to the program, these volunteers provide a daily check on our client's well-being. This short visit is often the highlight of an isolated and lonely client's day.
