provided by Meals on Wheels of Greater St. Louis include the elderly,
handicapped, convalescents, or anyone not able to shop for or prepare

Meal service may be requested for up to five weekdays

to meet eligibility requirements. Meals are delivered before, at,
or after noon on weekdays; delivery on holidays varies by area program.
Some programs are able to accommodate certain special dietary considerations,
such as low salt, diabetic, or mechanical; you may inquire as to
which meal types your area program provides. Daily meal cost and
billing arrangements to the recipient vary slightly by area program.
Specifics of each area program can be discussed with the program
coordinator during the eligibility interview.

above eligibility requirements, please see How
