Meals on Wheels of Wake County provides a hot, nutritious noontime meal Monday through Friday. These meals are either delivered to the home or served at one of our eight congregate dining rooms. Some clients utilize our service while recovering from illness or surgery, others need meals indefinitely. We do not serve special diet meals, but our clients can adapt our menu to their daily dietary needs.
