Meals on Wheels
Atterdag at Home Meals on Wheels provides an average of 40-50 meals per day Monday-Friday to homebound seniors in Solvang, Ballard, Santa Ynez and Los Olivos.
The three basic elements of Atterdag at Home Meals on Wheels are to provide:
Hot Nutritious Meals
Brief Social Visits
Daily Checks on the Well-Being of the Recipients
What you should know:
Meals are delivered mid-day Monday-Friday to homebound seniors.
The meals are prepared at Atterdag Village of Solvang and are planned by a registered dietician.
Each meal consists of an entrée, salad, bread or roll with margarine, ½ pint of low-fat milk and a dessert.
Two special diet options are also available:
No Added Salt (this only applies to the entrée)
No Sugar (this only applies to the desserts and some salads) this is not the ADA 1800 calorie diet.
Meals cost $4.50. If cost is an issue, Atterdag at Home Meals on Wheels provides a subsidy on a sliding scale and will work with the client to provide meals at a lower cost. No one is turned away because of their inability to pay.
The meals are delivered by a large, dedicated group of volunteers from the community, including several church groups.
