The Home Delivered Meals program, also known as Meals on Wheels, is designed to ensure that homebound seniors have nutritious meals available to them on a daily basis. Eligibility is based on need.  There is no financial eligibility requirement.  There is a suggested donation for those who can afford it.  For additional information please call:  973-209-0123.

The nutrition programs are just one aspect of the services provided by the Sussex County Division of Senior Services in their Mission “to enable older individuals and/ or their caregivers to choose from a coordinated system of services that enable seniors to live as independently as possible in their homes and in their communities while enjoying a dignified quality of life.”  For more information about services available for seniors and caregivers, call 973 – 579-0555.
