Home Delivered Meals
Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada has a long-standing commitment to help fight hunger and improve nutrition for the homeless and needy, homebound and malnourished, low- and no-income adults and children. As one of the largest private nonprofit social service provider in the state, Catholic Charities offers programs that help sustain human dignity by providing the most basic necessity of life - food.
We are the Only Agency Providing Meals Directly to Seniors
Catholic Charities has been providing “Meals on Wheels” to older adults in southern Nevada since 1975. Today, as our city has grown, so has our program; proudly delivering seven nutritionally balanced, frozen meals to over 1,200 clients each and every week all through the year. Annually 430,000 meals are prepared from scratch; then packaged, sealed and labeled; and then bagged and delivered in refrigerated/freezer trucks by our caring delivery drivers. We are the only home-delivered meal program for seniors in Las Vegas that provides meals at no cost to the client; and the only organization that delivers therapeutic meals citywide. Diabetic, chopped, and pureed meal plans are available for seniors with special nutritional needs.
We offer not only nutritional interventions by way of balanced meals, nutrition supplements, meal modification, and nutrition counseling and education, but also act as a key voice of community advocacy for those defined as ‘high risk’ seniors.
A testimony to our sustainability is the fact that Catholic Charities of Southern Nevada has been serving clients in this manner for greater than 30 years of uninterrupted service. We have experienced tremendous growth coupled with
long term partnerships that have been a substantial community based benefit.
With 1,200+ clients and over 8,400 meals prepared and delivered each week, we are Nevada’s largest & most enduring Nutrition Program for the elderly. We utilize
a central kitchen that is also the distribution site for the meals that are delivered throughout southern Nevada.
Today, Meals on Wheels, a fully integrated and comprehensive program, offers homebound older adults nutritionally balanced meal services, in addition to dietary consultation and overall support for improved living.
