A completed application for service must be received before meal service can begin.  Once the application is complete, it can be mailed, faxed or dropped off at the Suffolk Meals on Wheels office on the Garden Level at Sentara Obici. Anyone may recommend a person for receiving meals. Most of our referrals are from family members, home health agencies, hospitals, doctors, or the client themselves.  Meal delivery is important and contributes to senior nutrition and health. Once we receive the application and start-up payment, we will call the applicant to confirm when they would like to start their meals.

 

  • Our first priority is always providing two (2) nourishing meals, including 2 beverages (juice or milk) Monday – Friday each week.  These are delivered by our dedicated volunteers.
  • Meals are prepared by Sentara Obici Food Services. The menus are developed by a licensed dietician and are required to meet at least 2/3 of the Recommended Dietary Allowance for Seniors.

 

We offer a wide variety of diets including: Hearty Healthy, Low Sodium, Diabetic, Renal, and chopped and/or pureed so those with difficulty chewing and swallowing can receive appropriate nutrition to remain in their homes.

 

Two meals are delivered daily. (Special diets are available on request).
