Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque
Meals on Wheels of Albuquerque is the only home delivered meal program that prepares meals for people with special dietary needs. The organization caters to people with diabetes, renal failure, heart issues, chewing and swallowing problems, and other dietary restrictions. It receives no federal or state funding. Through grants, donations, and the support of the community, Meals on Wheels started the Low Income Food and Enrichment Program (L.I.F.E.) for those people meeting the federal government’s defined poverty level of $980/month or less and who require a special diet due to health issues. The L.I.F.E. Program is currently the only one of its kind in the Albuquerque metro area—providing services to anyone of any age with any disability for any period of time.
