UPDATED: Aug. 30: The Meals on Wheels program of Minuteman Senior Services provides a hot lunch to homebound seniors.

Meals are delivered five days a week, 52 weeks a year, excluding holidays.  These meals assist the older adult who is not capable of preparing at least one hot nutritious meal a day.

In many cases, Meals on Wheels allows them to live in the dignity and comfort of their own homes.  In Arlington, almost 150 meals are delivered each day. 

The group also has a dining program for socializing at the Arlington Senior Center, 27 Maple St. from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on weekdays.

The need for volunteers to help deliver meals is great.  For more information on volunteering, or to apply, call 781-221-7093, email the Volunteer Coordinator, Yuen Li at This email address is being protected from spambots.
