Specially planned menus

There are no age, income, or dietary requirements to receive meals from Bismarck Meals on Wheels.

Meals are prepared in the kitchen of Sanford Health, under supervision of a registered dietitian with certification from the State Health Department. Clients can be assured that the meals are well-balanced and nutritious.

Each meal, complete with beverage, comes in separated hot and cold containers and is ready to eat. Specially planned menus meet the needs of clients whose physicians have prescribed low-sodium, low-calorie, diabetic, or other specific diets. Special diets represent about 75% of the clients on our program.

Sample menu items may include:

  • Entrees 
    seasoned chicken breast, roast beef, lasagna, meatloaf, turkey, pork chop, tilapia, cod, spaghetti with meat sauce, seasoned beef patty, cabbage roll, chicken cordon bleu
  • Vegetables
    mashed potatoes and gravy, baked potato, a variety of mixed vegetable blends, corn, peas, carrots, green bean, broccoli.
  • Salads
    veggie cup, homemade pasta salad, homemade pea salad, garden salad with dressing, cottage cheese
  • Desserts
    fresh fruit cup, pears, peaches, apples, applesauce, graham crackers, pudding, cookies

Meals on Wheels pays the actual cost of the meals, but a sliding fee scale is used to determine a recipient's share of the cost.
