Meals on Wheels Millbrook Meals on Wheels Millbrook delivers three days a week, to those in need.  We are pledged to serve the elderly homebound residents of the Town of Washington and the Village of Millbrook, and when we are able those in neighboring areas who do not have access to a similar program.  We also may be able to help those with a short-term need, such as hospice care or recovering from surgery at home.   Please contact us at to learn if we can assist. 

Meals on Wheels would like to thank Ken and Tom at Stonewword Farm in Mabbetsville for providing us with some fantastic vegetables this Spring and Summer.  They have decided to provide Lyall's First Harvest Pantry and Meals on Wheels with the produce from a substantial patch on their farm.  They donated the various types of Lettuce that we have been using in sandwiches and, soon, we'll receive other great quality, organic vegetables including squashes and heirloom tomatoes.  We'll be trying to include these great tasting and nutritious items in your meals for the next few months.  Enjoy, and we'll send a tremendous thank you to the team at Stonewood.
