Nutrition Program Eligibility

YWCA Metropolitan Phoenix serves nutritious and delicious meals to seniors (60+) and adults (18 – 59) living with disabilities through our Home Delivered Meals (HDM) and Congregate (dining room) Meal Programs.

Home Delivered Meals – Glendale

YWCA is the only provider of Meals on Wheels within the city of Glendale. Our clients are referred by AAA (Area Agency on Aging), Maricopa County S.A.I.L. (Senior Adult Independent Living), or ALTCCS (Arizona Long Term Care Health Systems) and receive up to seven meals delivered weekly. If you are already a client of one of these agencies and would like to request home delivered meals, please contact your case manager.

Eligibility for our home delivered and low cost meal programs are determined by Area Agency on Aging. Please call them at (602) 264-HELP (4357) to determine program eligibility.

Deliveries also include a wellness check. Private meal deliveries are available.

Home Delivered Meals – All Other Cities

If you live outside of Glendale and would like home delivered meals, call Area Agency on Aging at (602) 264-HELP (4357) as well.
