Friendly Meals & Meals on Wheels

Friendly Meals and Meals on Wheels provide nutritious meals and the opportunity to socialize or a daily safety check to older adults in many communities in Cheshire County.  Over 100,000 meals are served annually.  The program is funded through the New Hampshire Bureau of Elderly and Adult Services and the generous support of local towns and participant contributions. 

Volunteer and financial contributions are greatly appreciated.
