Citrus County’s Meals On Wheels Program joins the National Meals On Wheels Association of America with the goal that “no senior goes hungry”.
In order to ensure that we are able to provide meals for homebound seniors here in Citrus County, we need volunteers!
Do you have a few hours a week to give of your time? If so, your local Meals On Wheels Program could use your help! We deliver meals to seniors throughout Citrus County around the lunchtime hours, Monday through Friday. We need volunteers who are willing to give approximately 2 hours of their time, one day a week, to deliver meals to seniors.
Each month, the Citrus County PetMeals Program provides food to the companion pets of senior homebound clients who receive Meals on Wheels.
We are in great need of unopened bags of cat and dog food at this time.
The PetMeals program began when a very thin man receiving Meals on Wheels was only taking small bites of his food and then placing his food tray on the floor for a very overweight Chihuahua to finish the meal. When asked why he was doing this, he stated he did not have the money to buy dog food any longer and that he would rather go hungry than not feed his beloved pet.
