Meals on Wheels


For many Americans, Meals on Wheels is literally the difference between remaining in their own homes and needing to relocate to a nursing facility. The nutritious meal, friendly visit and safety check help them cope with three of the biggest threats of aging: hunger, isolation and loss of independence. Research proves that when seniors have the right support, they gain greater quality of life, need fewer hospital stays and live longer. Meals on Wheels serves individuals who are unable to prepare their own food because of physical limitations. A home visit is required to determine eligibility, and if found eligible, arrangements are made to have meals delivered to the individual’s home. At Berks Encore, we aim to serve everyone in need of home-delivered meals in Douglassville, Wernersville,Mifflin, Reading, Fleetwood, and Strausstown PA. The Meals on Wheels program provides not just a nutritious meal, but also a check in by a volunteer. Meals are packed in each of our six centers to help save time, money, and other valuable resources. Our centers also provide congregate meals to seniors who are not homebound, yet unable to prepare their own meals. Everyone age 60+ is invited to enjoy a hot nutritious meal while in a social environment at one of our community centers.

Why Join our Grocery Shopping Program?

“ My neighbors have been wonderful helping me, but I don’t want to ask for their help too often. This program has changed my life because now I am eating food again that I couldn’t get before and it is wonderful. Also, my volunteer is very helpful, congenial and is very interested in what I’m doing. She’s very nice and I think she enjoys helping. I thank God that there are people like her. We really need more people like her. ”

— Jeanne, grocery shopping program recipient

“ I personally enjoy bringing what little bit of time I can to share a smile and a few moments of conversation with the seniors I have the pleasure of serving, and I believe I can spare an hour or so a week to provide a friendly visit. I think the act of visiting is the most important part. I believe they really appreciate the services and knowing that someone cares about them. I truly love to give, and I always leave my visits with such a good feeling that I have left behind a moment of joy for that person, no matter how small or brief, the feelings of care and compassion linger. ”

— Kellie, grocery shopping program volunteer
