WHAT WE DELIVER

Special Diets such as: bland; low sodium; low fat/low cholesterol; diabetic; low fiber; mechanical soft; and puree can be accommodated. Allergy requirements will also be honored. It must be remembered, however, that we cannot accommodate individual likes and dislikes as this is not a restaurant service.

HOW TO RECEIVE MEALS
Contact our office by calling (631) 689-7070 Monday through Friday between the hours of 9 am and 1:30 pm.
The office staff will obtain basic information, answer any questions that you may have and verify that the client lives in our service area.
Then a Registered Nurse will visit the client at home and complete the needed intake application. The nurse will also obtain the client’s dietary needs. Often other family members are present during that visit but it is not required.
Meal recipients must be home to receive the meal. Meals will not be left outside the door; food left unprotected or unrefrigerated can be dangerous. We comply with Health Department regulations for safe food handling.
Two meals are delivered each day, a hot meal to be eaten at the time of delivery and a cold meal for the evening. Meals are delivered 5 days per week Monday thru Friday.
$7.50 per day
$37.50 per week
$150-187.50 per month
Additional subsidies are available based on the client’s financial need.
On the last Friday of each month a billing statement is sent to the address designated by the client. Payment in full is expected within 30 days. Since adding a client onto a delivery route is a complex process requiring: adjustment of driving directions, alteration of diet slips, and alerting meal preparation sites, we require a non-refundable prepayment of $75 to cover the first 2 weeks of service.
