Meals on Wheels
The Meals on Wheels program provides more than just a nutritious meal – it can offer peace of mind.
In Pennsylvania, more than 1 in 4 seniors live alone, 8% live in poverty, and 30% live with a disability. Meals on Wheels can deliver a nutritious meal, a friendly visit and a safety check which can make all the difference for many at risk seniors who prefer to live in their own home.
If you or someone you know could benefit from home delivery of a daily meal and peace of mind a daily visitor can offer, please click here for eligibility requirements and information to register.
More than 1000 volunteers dedicated over 60,000 hours to support the programs of Berks Encore. Our volunteers are truly unsung heroes. We appreciate each one of them and every single hour they contribute. Volunteers provide a variety of services including packing and delivering meals, grocery shopping, friendly visits, preparing taxes, preparing the monthly newsletter or other services at our centers, during events, and in our office. They are an essential part of bringing aging services to Berks County’s residents.
We still need assistance to ensure that seniors in Berks County get the help they need! If you can provide even as little as one hour a month, click here for the volunteer application or call Rita at 610-374-3195 ext. 225 to find out more.
