First Steps Meal Program

Coming home from the hospital or a skilled nursing facility?  Recovering from illness?  

First StepsIf you're 60 or older, we'll bring you 5 free meals, delivered to your front door.

No strings, no catch, nothing for you to fill out. 

Research shows if you're an older adult returning home from the hospital, it can take up to two weeks for you to regain your strength and resume activities of daily living.  

Receiving meals through our First Steps meal program can give you the "fuel" your body needs to recover more quickly.

The First Steps program, funded by a special grant from Prairie Meadows, allows us to offer any current or new client age 60 or older 5 free meals during his or her first five days at home after a hospital or short-term rehabilitation stay. If he or she likes the meals, we'll continue to deliver them, and appropriate charges, if any, will apply for those subsequent meals. If he or she doesn't want to continue delivery, we'll go away quietly!
