About Us

Food & Friends, the Meals on Wheels and Senior Meals program of Jackson and Josephine Counties, is a senior nutrition program designed to support independent living. Balanced nutrition and social contact on a frequent basis are key to maintaining good health and necessary for living independently at home. In addition to the meals we serve and vital social contact, our service provides a regular safety net check to program recipients.

Our volunteer drivers deliver more than 16,000 meals each month to individuals living independently at home, who, for health reasons, cannot make their own meals. An additional 3,000 meals are served each month at our 12 congregate senior dining sites with the help of our volunteers. We typically serve over 235,000 meals to approximately 3,000 people in Jackson and Josephine Counties each year.
