Senior Nutrition

Good nutrition is the keystone in a senior's overall health. We provide nutritious, healthy lunches to enable seniors to live at home independently. Whether you are looking to share a meal with friends or to get meals delivered to your home, we have a menu of options for you to choose from.

For more information, see below or contact us at 801-229-3802 or nutrition@mountainland.org.

We provided more than 400,000 meals in 2020
in Summit, Utah, & Wasatch counties.

Our Meal Program

Individuals 60 years of age or older (regardless of income) may receive a nutritious meal.
Choose from the following two options:


Home-delivered meals with
Meals on Wheels

For those who are homebound and have trouble getting around, we deliver the meal to you.


Community meals at a
Senior Center

For those who are able to venture out from their homes, lunch is served at your local senior center, providing an opportunity to stay connected to your community.

Recipients must be:

  • 60 years of age and older
  • Homebound, which means unable to leave home without assistance

*A caregiver spouse of a homebound senior and/or the disabled child of a homebound senior are also eligible if the homebound senior is receiving meals.

Participants must be:

  • 60 years of age and older
  • Those who are under the age of 60 may be served a meal but are required to pay $6 per meal.

*The spouse of a senior and/or the disabled child who is receiving the meals are also eligible.

The voluntary donation for each meal is $3. This donation is made monthly. A record of your meals is provided at the end of each month and you can either mail in a donation or donate online.

The voluntary donation for each meal is $3. This donation can be accepted daily. Anyone under the age of 60 may eat at the senior center but for a required $6 a meal.

Meals are delivered Monday-Friday excluding holidays. The number of delivery days is dependent upon need or desire for less.

Meals are offered Monday-Friday, excluding holidays at most senior centers. Check at each location specifically for days when meals are served.

Call or refer online. An assessment must be completed with a Meals on Wheels staff before your meals begin.

What's in a meal?

When designing our menu, we consult with a registered dietitian to provide you with a healthy and delicious meal.
Each meal includes protein, vegetables, fruit, grains and milk. All of our meals meet low-sodium, heart healthy special diet requirements and offer one-third of the recommended daily intake for older adults.


Special Diets

Many special diets are accommodated, including allergies and texture-modified meals that include ground foods for recipients with chewing or swallowing difficulties. A carbohydrate count of menu items is available for recipients with diabetes. Ask about our special diets during your assessment.


Volunteer

Volunteers are needed one hour once a week to deliver meals to homebound seniors in our community. 


Donate your lunch break today and drop off a meal and a smile to a senior in your neighborhood. Let's do lunch!
