Homelink's Meals On Wheels is a private, non-profit agency governed by a voluntary board and is managed by Homelink, Inc.  This home delivered meal agency has grassroots beginnings.  It was first organized in 1974 by a small group of concerned persons who recognized the need for a home delivered meal program.  Since then, thousands of persons have benefited from receiving nutritious meals in their local community.

To be eligible for the service, meal recipients must meet the following criteria:
  • Need assistance with meal preparation due to health problems
  • Live in our service area (check our zip code list)

Homelink's Meals on Wheels delivers to specific zip codes in Northwest, North, West and South Philadelphia.  All meals are planned by a registered dietitian and are low in sodium and cholesterol.  Dinner consists of a protein source, vegetable, and starch and is served with bread, juice, milk and dessert.  A fee is charged.  When available, donations are used to assist eligible consumers with paying for their meals.  Meals are delivered the next delivery day following the request for service.  it is important to note that agencies receiving funding (area agencies on aging) take a few weeks or longer to respond to a request for home delivered meals.
