Meals on Wheels

Together we can deliver more meals

The Canyon County Meals on Wheels program helps seniors that may experience a decline in mobility or health and are unable to prepare a hot meal for themselves. Many recipients have no family available and look forward to the only face they will see throughout the day, when their meal is delivered. Our community population has exploded and there has never been more of a need for funding for these meals.

The Canyon County Festival of Trees supports both Caldwell and Nampa Meals on wheels programs.
