Congregate program serves hot meals in various locations throughout Yakima County. Our meal sites offer a chance to meet new friends and enjoy healthy, nutritious meals in friendly surroundings.
Transportation is available to our dining rooms in most locations if needed. We suggest reservations be made at least the day before you plan to attend by 3:30 PM, to assure that a meal will be there for you.
Seniors at all dining rooms can choose between traditional American or authentic Mexican meals
The home delivery program is by qualification based on the senior being homebound and have no one to prepare a meal for them and are no longer able to prepare a nutritious meal on their own. Below are the two options for home delivery:
MEALS FOR PETS PROGRAM
Provides dog and cat food, pet supplies such as cat litter, beds, leashes, collars and treats for homebound seniors on the home delivery program.
FROZEN MEALS PROGRAM
Weekly meal delivery is available for those that need it. If delivery is not an option to the senior then a family member or friend can pick up the 7 day frozen meals once a week at one of our dining rooms or central office.

HERE IS HOW YOU CAN HELP
When congress created the Older American Nutrition Program, it was created with the intent that many of the jobs be done with volunteers. Therefore, the funding only covers the basic program necessities of food product, equipment, supplies and minimal staffing to cook the meals. The idea behind volunteers was simple: using seniors to perform much of the work at meal sites and with home delivery gave the seniors opportunities to maintain physical activities, those who felt they couldn’t afford to pay for meals would have a chance to ‘work’ for their meal, and above all, it gave them a sense of purpose, the feeling of being needed and for many – a reason to live.
The Meals On Wheels program of Yakima County depends on volunteers in various capacities to operate senior dining rooms (when open) and home delivery. Volunteers are not just seniors, they are all ages, from high school to concerned fully employed people who want to help out during their lunch hour.
It can be daily during the lunch hour, once a week or whenever your time allows. Without volunteers, our program would be significantly reduced.
If you are interested in volunteering please fill out the volunteer application or call us at 509-426-2601 or toll free 1-855-426-2601.
