Many local seniors are homebound and struggle to obtain healthy meals. Hundreds have no one to talk with or check on them on a regular basis. When volunteers come to the door with a hot meal Monday through Friday, the food and visit help these seniors stay healthy and independent longer.
Who is Eligible?
Homebound Forsyth County residents age 60 and over who are unable to obtain and prepare a nutritious meal for themselves are eligible for this service. There may be a waiting list in certain parts of Forsyth County if the route in that area is full.

Here's what recipients say about Meals-on-Wheels:
“It assures me of at least one hot meal each day. Also, I get to see at least one person each day. Thanks so much.”
“If there were no Meals-on-Wheels, I would not have food to eat.
Thank you for the help.”
” I enjoy all of the volunteers who deliver my meals. The Meals-on-Wheels program helps me nutritionally, socially, personally, physically and educationally. God Bless.”
Want to become a Meals-on-Wheels volunteer?
Meals-on-Wheels volunteers deliver a hot meal and a warm smile to homebound seniors. Deliveries generally take about an hour and a half Monday through Friday between the hours of 10:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. Routes are available all over Forsyth County and volunteers can deliver once a week, once a month or as often as their schedules allow.
Current Meals-on-Wheels volunteers needing to make contact with the office should email (email@example.com) or call (336-721-6910) to reach Gretchen Duffey, Meals-on-Wheels Coordinator.
