Meals on Wheels

LifePath’s Meals on Wheels program is also known as Home Delivered Meals.  We provide you or your loved one with a hot, nutritious home-cooked meal delivered ready to eat by one of our friendly and caring drivers.

Each day our dedicated staff arrive at our Meals on Wheels kitchen in downtown Albany to prepare more than 600 meals.  The meals are typically delivered Monday through Friday between 11:00 am and 12:30 pm.  Cold meals for an additional meal at a later time and frozen meals for the weekend may also be available, depending on the funder.

Each menu is developed by a Registered Dietitian to ensure meals are balanced and nutritious – complete with meat/protein, vegetable, carbs/grain, bread, milk, and dessert.
