By working together, Consortium members ensure that all eligible Ramsey County residents have access to daily home-delivered meals. Unlike most urban areas, we are proud to have NO waiting list.

This effective, economical and streamlined system provides the following benefits:

  • Helps seniors have a higher quality of life
  • Reduces nursing home costs borne by taxpayers by helping seniors remain living at home
  • Ensures that there are no gaps in Meals on Wheels services to Ramsey County seniors
  • Stretches limited government and private resources allocated for senior services
  • Avoids costly duplication of services
  • Promotes “best practices” and delivery of high quality senior services
  • Addresses specific needs of each agency’s service area
