Home Delivered Meals

Our Mission

To deliver nutritious meals to the home-bound individuals of Fountain Hills.

Meal Assistance

Our purpose is to provide nutritional noon-time meals for individuals of all ages living in Fountain Hills who require meal assistance. This program assists individuals recovering from illness or surgery and allows home bound individuals to reside longer in the comfort of their own home.

Meals

Each meal consists of a hot entree provided in a 3-compartment aluminum container as well as a cold sack consisting of a salad, milk, fruit and dessert.  Meals are kept in insulated bags during delivery to ensure a safe temperature is maintained.  Special meals are also available to meet medical dietary restrictions.

Meal Preparation & Delivery

Meals are prepared by Fountain View Village and delivered by caring volunteers for a fee of $6.50 per meal.  Noon time meals are delivered seven days a week including all major holidays. Clients request the days they wish to receive meals based on availability.  Some may desire daily deliveries whereas others may wish to receive meals on alternate days.  Clients must be residents of Fountain Hills, stay on the program for a minimum of two weeks and be home to receive their meal between the hours of 11:00 a.m. and 12:30 p.m.
