"If you can't feed one hundred people, then just feed one."







The importance of what we do...

Meals on Wheels of NEPA serves all of Lackawanna County. We are open five days a week, Monday through Friday.


What Meals on Wheels of NEPA offers is simple, yet extremely important – hot, well-rounded meals delivered to your home along with a visit from a friendly volunteer. We offer special-needs menus for those with particular dietary needs.

  • Home Delivered Meals

    Home delivered meals are available to eligible persons 60 years of age and older, and are funded in part by the Lackawanna County Area Agency on Aging.

  • Fast Track Home Delivered Meals

    Available to eligible persons living in Lackawanna County, recently discharged from the hospital or a health care facility at no cost for a period up to 6 weeks. Funded in part by the United Way of Lackawanna and Wayne Counties.

  • Treasured Friends Pet Food Delivery Program

    The Treasured Friends Pet Food Program brings pet food to home delivered meal recipients who have no way of obtaining pet food.  Pets offer emotional support to seniors, additional opportunities for exercise, and help with depression.  For struggling pet owners, providing pet food can be the difference between being able to keep a cherished pet and being forced to surrender him or her.  We routinely hear from our meal recipients living on a fixed income that they are sharing their limited human food supply with their pet which means both human and pet are facing hunger and lack of proper nutrition.


    Those who qualify for Meals on Wheels or similar programs are almost always eligible for a free pet food program.


    If you would like to donate money to the Treasured Friends program or would like to volunteer to deliver pet food to seniors in the Meals on Wheels program, please call 570-346-2421.


  • Young Adult Program
