About Us


Meals on Wheels

Food & Friends delivers hot, nutritious meals Monday through Friday, between approximately 10:00 a.m. and 12:00 p.m. in most areas. Frozen meals are also available for use on the weekend if needed. Meals are delivered to eligible homebound seniors by friendly volunteers. For many of our seniors, this is their only social contact each day and their only whole meal of the day.

Eligibility for Meals on Wheels

· Age 60 years or older, or the spouse of someone age 60 or older.

· Homebound due to illness, injury or disability.

· Meal delivery is needed for at least two (2) weeks.

· Younger adults with disabilities who are on Medicaid should contact their case manager.  

· Please call our office with any questions regarding Older Americans Act (OAA) eligibility. 

Location

· Meals are available in communities throughout Jackson and Josephine Counties.

Senior Dining Sites   

Lunch is served at Food & Friends Senior Dining Sites from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., Monday through Friday in most areas.  Seniors are invited to one of our 12 locations to enjoy a hot, nutritious lunch and an opportunity to socialize with their peers.

 · Age 60 years or older, or the spouse of someone age 60 or older.

Cost 

· Seniors age 60 and older are asked to donate what they can comfortably afford towards the cost of their meals. No senior will be refused a meal due to lack of ability to donate.  A donation of $2.75 per meal is suggested. 

· Those who are receiving Senior Services may qualify to have meals delivered at no cost, and should contact their case manager about eligibility.

· People under age 60 who eat lunch at the Senior Dining Site who do not qualify for a subsidized meal are asked to pay $6.75, the full cost of their meal.

· Please call our office with any questions regarding Older Americans Act (OAA) eligibility.


How to Request Meals on Wheels

· In Jackson County, call 541-734-9505.

The person requesting meals will be asked a series of basic questions as part of our intake process.  A Food & Friends Outreach Coordinator will then contact the client to schedule a home visit.  During this visit a simple assessment will be conducted and additional resources or materials will be provided as needed. 

Younger persons with disabilities (under age 60) who are Medicaid eligible should contact their case worker.
