Manitowoc County offers a service to eligible individuals which many people might not be aware of—home-delivered meals.
Home-delivered meals are available anywhere in the county. Eligibility guidelines are as follows:
¦ A person aged 60 years of age or older who is frail and essentially homebound (does not leave home under normal circumstances, flexibility is allowed for appointments), or a spouse of an eligible person regardless of age or condition.
¦ A disabled individual who resides at home with an eligible older individual participating in the program.
¦ The person is unable to participate in the congregate meals program because of physical or emotional problems.
¦ There is no spouse or other adult living in the same house or building willing to prepare meals and the individual is unable to physically or emotionally obtain food and prepare adequate meals.
Meals are available to all qualifying individuals on a donation basis regardless of income.
