Meals on WheelsMany of Artesia’s senior citizens gather daily for lunch provided by Artesia Senior Mealsite. Operated by the non-profit Southeast New Mexico Community Action Corporation, the Mealsite offers a lunch every weekday (Monday-Friday) for a $1.75 donation. Those enjoying the program must be 60 years or older and are required to complete some paperwork to qualify. Once qualified, senior citizens can visit any weekday for lunch and fellowship with other senior citizens. Artesia Senior Mealsite also delivers homebound meals to more than 100 clients. Again, clients must be at least 60 years of age and qualify as truly homebound. Artesia Meals-on-Wheels, Inc. is a private non-profit organization whose ability to serve its clients comes from more than 300 volunteers who give willingly of their time and donations. These volunteers are the vital link in the organization’s services and add an immeasurable human contact value to the program, which maintains the vision that all clients should be treated with dignity and respect. The program serves those who do not require hospitalization while recovering from illness or surgery, but need assistance because of ongoing health problems and simply need a helping hand. Thanks to contributions, the cost of meals has not increased in 39 years. To meet a variety of needs, meals are prepared by Artesia General Hospital’s dietary kitchen with an emphasis on proper nutrition. Meals-on-Wheels, Inc. - 575-746-9642
