Meals On Wheels
Our Meals on Wheels program serves participants who are over 60 years of age and home bound. While many of our participants are long-term, we do serve short-term clients who are recuperating from a hospital stay for illness or injury. These participants may receive Meals on Wheels for a week or two until back on their feet and able to prepare a meal for themselves.
We supply 1/3 of the Required Daily allowance with each meal. Participants have the option to receive frozen meals to heat and serve over the weekend.
Our delivery area is from where the Old Sterling meets the New Sterling (8 mile) and out to the Fritz Creek General Store and up East and West Hill to the Skyline cutoff. Due to food safety concerns, Homer Senior Citizens, Inc. will not leave food at a residence if no one is home.
To register for Meals on Wheels complete our application and submit it by email or in person.

Thank you for supporting us!
Be home when the delivery arrives. Please call us if you won’t be home.
Our driver is not responsible to bring back messages.
Please note we will not leave meals if you aren’t home.
In the case of an emergency, such as hospitalization, please have someone notify the office as soon as possible.
Because we care about your welfare, if there is no response at your home, our policy is to error on the side of caution and assume there is an emergency. Depending upon the circumstances, we may call your emergency contact, the hospital and the police.
How do we fund this program?
Funding for the meal program is partially funded by a State of Alaska grant, but it is the community’s support and participant donations that make this program such a huge success.
Remember your generous donations help this program remain a success.
What is the cost to me?
If you are over the age of 60 then we ask to you contribute as much as you feel you can afford towards the $5.00 per meal. Remember it is your generosity that helps us maintain this very valuable program.
