Get Meals

Chapel Hill Carrboro Meals on Wheels delivers much more than a meal. Read on to learn about:


Our Services

Chapel Hill Carrboro Meals on Wheels delivers a hot, balanced meal along with a quick, friendly check-in, Monday-Friday. 1 in 5 seniors in NC are food insecure and hundreds of thousands more are isolated or lonely. A hot meal and a friendly check-in are a lifeline to our recipients, offering sustenance, security and community. Meals on Wheels supports the efforts of older adults, homebound adults, and those convalescing to age in place with dignity.
Volunteers deliver meals 5 days a week, between 10:30 am and 12:30 pm. Recipients must be home during delivery to receive a meal.
For recipients who are not home each day at lunch due to medical appointments, dialysis, or rehab, Meals on Wheels can deliver a box of 5 frozen meals once a week. The recipients receiving these meals need the ability to heat the meals in a microwave.

Are You Eligible?

CHCMOW serves older adults, homebound adults and those convalescing in Chapel Hill, Carrboro and southern Orange County, who do not have access to, or the ability to prepare, healthy meals. People of all incomes and ages may be eligible. CHCMOW does not discriminate on the basis of race, religion, creed, color, gender, disability, or national origin. 


Our Fees

We base our fees on a recipient's income, using a sliding scale. Eligibility for Meals on Wheels is not dependent on a recipient’s ability to pay. Each hot meal delivered costs approximately $7. The most CHCMOW charges per meal is $5 ($100-$120 per month).
