This year we are on track to provide over 40,000 meals!
Meals on Wheels
For many of the seniors in our community, Meals on Wheels deliveries are literally the difference between remaining in their own homes and needing to relocate to a nursing or assisted living facility. The delivery of a nutritious meal, friendly visit and wellness check help them cope with three of the biggest threats of aging: hunger, isolation and loss of independence. For many seniors, our caring volunteer drivers are the only person they see or speak with all day.
We also offer Meals on Wheels services to those recuperating from an illness or hospital stay. They need our services while they are unable to cook or shop for themselves.
Our dedicated, caring volunteer drivers typically deliver between 11:00 am-1:00 pm Monday through Friday. Recipients can determine if they want meals daily or on a staggered schedule. We are flexible!
There are a number of contribution/payment options available so no senior goes hungry. NACOG clients are partially Federally funded and are asked to make a suggested contribution of $3.75 per meal. Private pay clients cost will be determined but will not exceed $7.50 per meal.
For complete details on our food programs and/or to sign up for Meals on Wheels for yourself or a loved one, please call us at (928) 282-2834. We look forward to hearing from you.

The Breakfast/Weekend Club
Recipients of Meals-on-Wheels are eligible for this program. The Breakfast/Weekend Club provides seniors with a grocery bag filled with food items to allow for a healthy diet over the weekend. The grocery bag of weekend items is delivered on Fridays.
The Community Lunch Program
We invite all members of the community to join us in our dining room for a delicious hot meal. Enjoy the friendly atmosphere and meet with and make new friends.
Our talented, award-winning chefs create a home-cooked meal in our own kitchen Monday through Friday. Four days a month we feature meals donated by our Restaurant Partners; El Rincon, Oak Creek Brewery & Grill, Poco Diablo Resort and Gerardo’s Italian Kitchen. We also want to thank Mountain High Florists for donating flowers weekly to be delivered to our Meals on Wheels clients. All of our partners are very much appreciated!
The Dining Room is open Monday through Friday from 11:45 am-1:00 pm with lunch served promptly at noon. Reservations are required a day in advance. Call us at (928) 282-2834. A suggested contribution of $5.00 per meal is appreciated. All ages are welcome.
