Healthy Bodies. Active Minds.
Our work at Meals on Wheels of Ocean County goes beyond filling basic nutritional needs. We also play an important role in helping our seniors live active, meaningful lives. The Meals on Wheels and On-Site Meal programs serve all of Ocean County, but our Outreach Services are limited to seniors living in Jackson, Lakewood, Plumsted, Point Pleasant Borough and Beach, and the non-Bricktown and Toms River shore areas from Bay Head to South Seaside Park.

We provide a diverse range of health, wellness, educational and outreach services, including:

Benefits screening—We identify seniors in need and link them with the appropriate services.

Volunteer friendly visitor and telephone reassurance—Our trained volunteers provide an outlet for social contact, helping isolated seniors stay connected.

Language translation and interpretation – Spanish, Afghani and Egyptian
