Nutritious, Chef-Prepared Meals for Seniors

Wilder’s Meals on Wheels provides affordable, nutritious meals to older adults and people with disabilities. Caring volunteers deliver these meals every weekday and serve as a lifeline for many people who live alone in our community.

Our program is offered in partnership with Metro Meals on Wheels. Our delivery area includes the Midway, Frogtown and surrounding neighborhoods of Saint Paul.
