Meals on Wheels
Known more popularly as “Meals on Wheels,” this is the first service ever provided by the Licking County Aging Program. Our drivers deliver not only hot mid-day meals, but smiles and conversation. Specially designed vehicles deliver the meals as hot as when they came out of the oven.
Meals delivered countywide to qualifying seniors and to five Newark and five Licking County dining centers. In Newark: Candlewick Commons, 15 S. Third St.; Sharon Glyn, 914 Sharon Valley Road; Terrace Gardens, 85 W. Church St.; Washington Square, 340 Eastern Ave. and Heritage Hall Senior Center, 1058 E. Main St. In Licking County: Chimes Terrance in Johnstown, LEADS Center on Adams Lane in Pataskala, Mitchell Retirement Center in Heath, Oak Hill Manor in Utica and Water’s Edge in Buckeye Lake. Meals served Monday through Friday, with preserved meals delivered for holidays, severe weather days and weekends. Service available to those 60 or older.
