Or call their toll-free number 24 hours a day and find out your state’s toll-free food stamp phone number, or leave your mailing address the federal office will mail you informational brochures.

Meals on Wheels (national office)

The Meals on Wheels program is designed to make sure that homebound individuals get at least one nutritious meal a day. Most meal deliverers are trained to recognize symptoms of problems, thus meal delivery offers some reassurance that an objective third party is touching base each day. Find out about the program closest to your care receiver.

Please Note: Baptist and Hospice - North Mississippi does not specifically endorse the activities of these organizations, but offers their information as a sample of the kinds of materials and services that are available.

"Eating isn't just about food. It's also about socializing and other kinds of nourishment. I encourage my patients to use the meal programs. Those daily meal visits provide important social contact as well as good nutrition."
