Weekend and Holiday Meals
Meals on weekends and holidays are designed to serve Meals-On-Wheels recipients who are most at risk of malnutrition because of lack of physical mobility, mental acuity and/or income. Those people who have no other resources for obtaining food on the weekends (such as friends or family) are eligible for this program.
- Frozen weekend meals are available to Meals-On-Wheels recipients who are able to reheat meals themselves. These meals are delivered on Fridays and recipients must reheat them.
- Hot weekend meals are available to Meals-On-Wheels recipients (Multnomah County only) who are at a higher risk of malnutrition because of lack of physical mobility, mental acuity or income.
A second daily meal is available to eligible individuals in a high nutritional risk status.
To qualify for weekend meals, the participant must already be receiving Meals-On-Wheels during the week and have no means of support or hot meals during the weekend. Loaves & Fishes also delivers meals on Thanksgiving upon request.
