Frozen Meals

In addition to the delivery of hot meals Monday to Saturday, Meals on Wheels has frozen meal delivery. The frozen meal program has become a popular alternative or supplement to the traditional hot meal delivery. One advantage of the frozen meals is the ability to select your own menu.
